When police stopped a car in Louth because the registered number was recorded as being a vehicle suspected of being used in drugs, they found cannabis and a grinder for use in the smoking of cannabis.
Brendan Michael Parr, 20, of Wallis Road, admitted possession of cannabis in Broadbank, Louth, on May 5 when he appeared before magistrates at Skegness.
The court was told that Parr was seen driving the black Vauxhall Nova at 8.50am and was stopped by a police officer.
When he searched the vehicle he found a grinder and packets of cannabis in the door well and the sun visor.
He was arrested.
Parr, who was not represented by a solicitor, said nothing to the magistrates, who imposed a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered him to pay £45 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
