A MAN has appeared in court charged with possessing cocaine.
David May, of Highroyd, Lepton, was before Kirklees magistrates yesterday.
He is alleged to have had a small quantity of the class A drug at his home on September 3.
James Weekes, prosecuting, said that police had executed a search warrant at the address.
He said that the officers discovered a bag of white powder.
May, 22, denies the charge as he claims that the powder was not cocaine.
He said that the bag contained ‘bash’, a form of drug cutting agent.
His trial will take place in the Huddersfield court on March 8. May was granted unconditional bail until that date.
