Man guilty after caught with cocaine

A Watford man has been found guilty of possessing two wraps of cocaine.

A jury at Luton Crown Court found Scott Smith guilty after rejecting his claims that he had discovered the two wraps in a pub car park on his way home.

Sentence on Smith was adjourned until next month (March) so that a pre-sentence report on him can be prepared.

Smith, 41, of Abbey View in Watford, was stopped by police driving home from The Badger public house on the evening of August 1 last year.

The court heard the officers suspected the defendant had been drink/driving and, after being arrested, he then produced two wraps of cocaine.

Giving evidence on Monday (February 7th), Smith told the court that he had found the two wraps in the car park outside The Badger as he was making his way to his car. 

He said he was intending to take them home to flush them down the toilet.
