Jailbird On Prison Licence Nicked For Drugs Again

An ex-jailbird was caught by police throwing away a cannabis wrap as he cycled along the pavement.

Earl Robert Crisp, 42, has recently been released from a two-and-a-half year prison sentence for delivering drugs and will remain on licence until January.

Crisp, of Chatsworth Crescent, Hounslow pleaded guilty to possessing a small amount of cannabis in Library Way, Whitton on November 21.

Prosecutor Miss Mary Atere told Wimbledon Magistrates Court it was nearly 4pm when officers spotted Crisp illegally riding his bike on the pavement.

He tried to avoid another drug arrest by throwing the wrap, but it was recovered by police.

The court heard Crisp is surviving on £75-a week Tesco's vouchers and is living in temporary housing.

He says he started smoking cannabis a couple of years ago to help him during a bout of depression.

Crisp was conditionally discharged for twelve months and ordered to pay £30 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.
