Three Earlham men have appeared in court after police found one of them cultivating cannabis plants and another with heroin stashed in a Kinder egg.

Norwich Magistrates' Court heard how police had gone to the Roe Drive home of Danny Brian Feavyer. When it was searched they found a cannabis reefer and 1.21g of heroin in a Kinder egg.

He was with Shane Vincent at the time, who was found to have £26 of heroin on him. Denis King, prosecuting, said

Raymond Paul Clayton was also present and police officers subsequently went to his home in Godric Place and Clayton told them where he was growing two cannabis plants.

Gavin Cowe, mitigating on behalf of all three defendants, said Clayton had been growing the cannabis for his own use, for when traditional painkillers were not enough to numb the pain his back as a result of two car accidents.

He said Feavyer was only a recreational user of drugs who had kept out of trouble since 2004, while Vincent had had a heroin addiction for 16 years.

Mr Cowe said: “They were all compliant when the police searched the premises.”

Clayton, 38, admitted cultivating two cannabis plants at his home. He was given a conditional discharge for 12 months

Feavyer, 30, admitted possessing cannabis and £70 of heroin and was given a conditional discharge for two years.

Vincent, 35, of Roe Drive, admitted possessing heroin worth £26.

Vincent, who was placed on a 12-month supervision order with a nine-month drug treatment requirement for another offence just days after this offence occurred, was given a conditional discharge for 12 months.

The three defendants were also ordered to pay court costs each of £25.
