MAGISTRATES have ordered a man to pay more than £200 in costs after he admitted a drug offence.

Sean Dean, of Forest Road, Colchester, appeared before officials in March where he admitted one charge of cannabis possession.

The court heard how Dean, 27, was found with the drug in November last year.

Admitting the charge, Dean was fined £40 and ordered to pay £145 in costs and £16 surcharge.

Dean is required to pay the full £201 fee by April 5.
