A Watford man who was found with 38 grams of cannabis in his home is to go on an Employment, Education and Training Course.

Wayne Evans, 41, was given a 12 month Community Order by Recorder Tim Clark after he pleaded guilty before his trial was due to start yesterday at St Albans crown court.

Prosecutor George Heimler said the police raided the home Evans shared with Victoria Paterson in Boundary Way, more than two years ago, on August 14, 2012.

Herbal cannabis was found in a kitchen drawer and a bottle of 130 pills, which were found to be Class C drugs, were inside the washing machine.

Evans pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis and Class C drugs with intent to supply.

Andel Singh, defending, said Evans' wife was pregnant with their first child. He has been undergoing investigations for a heart condition. 

Recorder Clark ordered him to attend the Employment, Education, and Training Course for ten days.
