A man called by the name Harry Potter has appeared in court in order to admit possessing cannabis. The 19-year-old muggle with the same name as The Boy Who Lived was stopped on his moped on January 19 when a police officer noticed a strong smell of cannabis.
He was searched and Potter, of York, was found with three wraps of cannabis and £70 in cash on him.
He pleaded guilty to possessing a class B drug with intent to supply at York Magistrates Court yesterday.
Jane Maloney – his solicitor, said he had not gained financially from dealing cannabis but had instead been buying the drug for himself, along with extra that he would pass on to his friends at York College only charging them the same amount he had paid.
