A 22-year-old woman was given a 12-month community order for drug driving in Welshpool.

Jessica Leigh Glover, of Foundry Lane, Welshpool, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine and cannabis, and two counts of drug driving.

Helen Tench, prosecuting, told Welshpool Magistrates' Court that Glover was stopped by police in her car in Mill Street at around 8pm on May 1. There was no smell of alcohol, however there was a strong smell of cannabis, and Glover, who was driving with a passenger, had a "glazed look".

Police searched the car and found a white bag under the driver's seat, cannabis in the glove box and a "rock-like substance". Mrs Tench added that there was £5-worth of cannabis and £24-worth of cocaine found in the vehicle.

Owain Jones, defending Glover, told the court that she was "remorseful" and "appreciated the seriousness of the situation".

Chair of the magistrates' bench Susan Usmar told Glover that she was "concerned" that a pattern was forming following on from three previous offences for drug driving.

The Chair gave Glover credit for her guilty pleas, and was given a 12-month community order along with 10 rehabilitation days. She was also given a fine of £185.

"It's to assist you as well as a punishment," the chair added.
