When police raided a Sutton on Sea home they were handed a Kinder egg containing amphetamine, a court has been told.

Shaun Lee Taylor,22, of Cades Field Road, admitted possession of the amphetamine when he appeared at Skegness Magistrates Court.

The court was told that on July 11 this year, police raided Taylor’s home and he handed the officers the hollow chocolate egg which contained a lump of amphetamine and he was arrested.

He told the officers he had bought the drug for £40 for his own use.

Magistrates were told Taylor was subject to a community order that had been imposed in January.

In defence, Andrea Wilkes said Taylor was due to have a party at his home and someone had suggested he buy some amphetamine, which he did the day before.

She said he suffered from anxiety and depression and was ADHD, for which he took medication.

She also explained that he got very tired and that was the reason he had bought the amphetamine.

Taylor was fined £75 and ordered to pay £80 in costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
