A WIDNES man has been told he may face prison after police found him with more than 100 ecstasy tablets as well as amphetamines.

Jamie Glover admitted being in possession of the drugs after a car he was travelling in was pulled over by the police near B&Q in the town shortly after 12am on January 8 this year.

Judge Roger Dutton was told at Warrington Crown Court on Friday that the 20-year-old was the passenger in the vehicle.

A police patrol decided to pull over the car after they spotted it in the car park with its lights off.

The occupants were asked if there were any drugs in the car after the officers thought they were acting suspiciously.

Glover, of Denton Street, gave them his wallet which contained 331mg of amphetamines.

Police also seized a cloth glasses case under the handbrake which contained 112 ecstasy tables and 1.5g of amphetamines.

After the arrest, he told police that the drugs were his and he had bought them at a pub with money which was given to him by friends as they were going to split the drugs between them.

The bricklayer was due to be sentenced on Friday but the case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report and he will now appear again on August 18.
