Lincoln man tries to hide drugs in his mouth and pants

He was found with around £4,500 in cocaine

A Lincoln man was trying to hide thousands of pounds in cocaine in his mouth and pants when he was caught by police in the early hours of the morning.

Officers stopped the Vauxhall Astra and the front seat passenger Adam Bolland was taken out of the vehicle so that he could be taken to the police station.

Tony Stanford, prosecuting, said: “During the journey the defendant indicated he had something in his mouth. It was a wrap containing 23.1 gs of cocaine.

“At the police station he indicated he had more drugs in his pants. There was a Kinder egg found in the car where the defendant was sitting. No doubt that was the original container for the drugs”

Mr Stanford said that in total 48g of cocaine, with a street value of around £4,500, were found on Bolland.

Bolland later said he had been looking after the drugs for the driver and only had them on him for a short period of time before the car was stopped.

Bolland, 29, of Kilburn Crescent, Lincoln, admitted a charge of possession of cocaine with intent to supply as a result of the incident on May 17, 2017.

Lesley Manley, in mitigation, said that since he was stopped Bolland has served a jail sentence for other matters.

He was released from that sentence in February 2018 and has since been making progress.

“He is off unlawful drugs. He has maintained regular contact with Addaction and has been undergoing counselling. He has made progress since he has been released from custody.”

Bolland was given a 15-month jail sentence suspended for a year together with a rehabilitation activity requirement.
