A MAN admitted he was 'as guilty as sin' when police found £100 worth of cannabis in a wheelie bin, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Paul Alan Roberts, 48, of Calder Crescent, kept the drugs in the bin so they were out of the way from his grandchildren when they visited, said Julie Grant, prosecuting.

Alan Greaves, defending, said Roberts was a long-term cannabis user. He said the drugs helped him cope with health problems.

Police turned up at his home after getting a call from someone.

Roberts, who admitted possession of cannabis, was given a 12-month conditional discharge, ordered to pay £85 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
