A man who carried a samurai sword and was found with class B drugs in Hitchin has pleaded guilty to a number of offences.
Wayne Ginn - of Sipson Road in West Drayton, London - pleaded guilty to five separate offences at Stevenage Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, March 17.
The court heard how on November 7 of last year, the 51-year-old was found to have unlawfully had a samurai sword in his possession while he was in Bedford Road, Hitchin.
He was forced to pay costs of £438 for this offence.
Officers also discovered Ginn had amphetamine and cannabis in his possession at the time, both class B drugs, which were surrendered to police and destroyed.
Ginn was also fined £120 and disqualified for driving for four months, after he drove his Ford Focus while disqualified.
And in January, Ginn failed to return to court while on bail.
