Drugs hidden inside condom.

CANNABIS was found hidden in a condom during a police search.

Five pounds of the drug was discovered when James Fair bairn was searched during his arrest for an unrelated matter on Friday.

Unemployed Fair bairn, 37, of Fife Street, Gates head, admitted possession of the Class C drug when he appeared before Gateshead magistrates.

Magistrates gave him a discharge after hearing he had spent the weekend in police custody.

Fair bairn, who has a previous conviction for possession of heroin, landed himself in trouble after a spat with his girlfriend.

Michael Foley, defending, said Fair bairn contacted police to say she had hit him over the head with a bottle.

He was arrested in hospital, where he was being treated for a cut to his head, after the girlfriend made a claim he pushed her.

And while at the police station, the cannabis, which was for his own use, was found, Mr Foley added.
