A wanted man was found with a tin of worthless heroin on him when he handed himself in at the police station.

Robert Law, of Pickford Street in Milnsbridge, was wanted on recall to prison.

He walked into Huddersfield Police Station on February 24, Kirklees magistrates were told.

He also handed over a small metal container.

These contained a number of wraps of heroin and the 50-year-old was further arrested for possession of a controlled drug.

Law claimed that he had found the tin in the street a few days previously.

Bob Carr, mitigating, said that his client did not use class A drugs.

He said: “He knew that police were looking for him and took with him this item which he hadn’t touched since he found it.

“It was decomposed and wet, it was worthless and at least 10 grams of the 19 grams found was water.

“This was a rubbish product which was never utilised by him.

“Walking into a police station is the height of stupidity if he perceived that they were class A drugs of some value.”

Magistrates gave Law a conditional discharge and ordered the destruction of the heroin.
