Police discovered Class B drugs in Tupperware boxes when they were called the home of an upset Monkton woman.

Laura Woodward-Smith, formerly of Monkton, now of Goathland, Yorkshire, pleaded guilty to cannabis and amphetamine possession when she appeared at Haverfordwest magistrates court on Wednesday, September 5.

Vaughan Pritchard-Jones, prosecuting, told the court that police responded to reports of Woodward-Smith ‘in a state’ and throwing glass bottles down the communal hallway of the Monkton block of flats at 9.50am on May 3.

Woodward-Smith, 23, was back in her flat when officers arrived, and appeared upset.

Mr Pritchard-Jones said: “Her behaviour was erratic. She was shouting one minute and brushing away tears the next.

“The officers noticed Tupperware boxes containing amphetamine and crumbs of amphetamine. They were seized and she was arrested.”

She told officers that she used the drugs to cope with anxiety.

Mike Kelleher, defending, said the 0.7g of cannabis and 0.6g of amphetamine were worth a total of £13, and had been for Woodward-Smith’s personal use.

Magistrates fined Woodward-Smith £120 for each offence and ordered her to pay £85 costs and a £30 surcharge.

A destruction order was issued for the seized drugs.
