An unemployed Glanaman dad-to-be has been granted a 12-month conditional discharge after he admitted possessing cannabis.

Glen Anthony Styles, of 17 Maes y Glyn, appeared before Llanelli magistrates to plead guilty to possessing 3.12 grammes of the Class B drug when officers attended his home on December 6.

Gerald Neave, prosecuting, told the court how police visited the property at 9.20pm on an unrelated incident.

When the officers arrived they were able to smell cannabis at the property.

Styles told the officers he had earlier “smoked a joint”.

When Styles was searched, the officers found a bag containing cannabis resin in his pocket.

Kate Williams, defending, told the court that Styles “only smoked in his own home”.

“He would never smoke in public,” said Ms Williams.

She told the court that Styles had regularly been in trouble as a youngster, but has since “turned his life around”.

Styles apologised to the court for “wasting your time”.

He was granted a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £50 costs and a £15 legal surcharge.
