A PERSHORE drug dealer has been told ‘all options are open’ after he was caught with almost £3,000 worth of cannabis.

Robert Gwynn-Newitt, of Avon Bank Cottages, was stopped by police in his silver BMW in Spetchley after he came off Junction 6 of the M5 at 1.55pm on September 16.

Officers approached the car and noticed a strong smell of cannabis so carried out a search on the 31-year-old’s vehicle.

They found a plastic tub and a tin containing the class B drug, Worcester Magistrates Court heard last Friday (November 21).

He was arrested for possession with intent to supply and was questioned as to whether he had any more drugs at his home address, which he admitted he had.

A further search was then conducted at his property and another large quantity of cannabis was found. A combined total of 285 grams was uncovered in his vehicle and address, the court was also told.

This yielded a potential street value of £2,850.

Gwyn-Newitt, who the court heard had got himself into £2,500 worth of debt through drug buying and selling, said he got the

drugs in Drakes Broughton and admitted selling it to his friends.

A full pre-sentence report was ordered before the defendant appears at Worcester Crown Court on December 19.
