A TEENAGER offering to supply cannabis in Chichester has been given a community order by magistrates.

Bradley Murphy, 19, of Hay Road, Chichester, pleaded guilty to offering to supply cannabis between October, 2012, and August, 2014, at Worthing Magistrates’ Court

“The court heard that Murphy was arrested when police officers carried out a drugs warrant at his home on Friday, November 7, 2014,” said a police spokesman.

“During the search they found cannabis and associated drug paraphernalia in the garden shed and a large quantity of expensive clothing and trainers in his bedroom.”

Murphy appeared in court on May 12 and was given a one-year community order, carrying out unpaid work for 120 hours. He is also under a night-time curfew on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays for 12 weeks.

He was also ordered to pay £85 court costs.
