When police raided a Louth home, they found 50 individual deals of cannabis being wrapped for supply.

James Mark Padbury, 20, now living in Rutland Street, Grimsby, but then living in Commercial Road, Louth, admitted possessing the cannabis with intent to supply on November 23 last year, when he appeared before magistrates in Skegness.

The court was told the cannabis amounted to 63 grammes with a street value of £740. Paul Wood, prosecuting, said Padbury admitted to officers he had taken delivery of the cannabis and was in the process of bagging it up to sell.

When officers examined his phone, they found text messages with orders for the cannabis.

Magistrates were told Padbury was in breach of a 12 month prison sentence suspended for two years, imposed for robbery by Grimsby Crown Court in June 2011.

He was remanded on unconditional bail for sentence at Lincoln Crown Court on a date to be notified.
