PUBLISHED: 17:00 07 October 2012


A 25-YEAR-OLD from Knebworth has been left more than £1,700 out of pocket after admitting to possession of drugs and drink driving.

Michael Buffery, of Gun Meadow Avenue, admitted two drugs charges and three motoring offences at Central Herts Magistrates Court last week.

Buffery was fined £625 for possession of a wrap of cocaine on July 15, and £375 for possession of a bag of herbal cannabis.

He was also fined £625 for driving without insurance.

Magistrates heard he was over the drink-drive limit when he was arrested, and was driving while disqualified.

For the latter two offences he was given a community order.

Buffery was also ordered to pay £100 in additional costs.
