|A TERMINALLY-ill man arrested in a police drugs swoop has been given an absolute discharge by magistrates.|
John Miller, 59, admitted possession of cannabis resin and amphetamines when he appeared at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates' Court.
The court heard that Miller, of Clare Close, Mildenhall, used cannabis to control pain and amphetamines for depression.
Drugs seized during the raid, on June 8, were 34g of cannabis resin with a street value of about £85 and a gram of amphetamines worth about £10.
The raid was one of a series carried out on the same day as part of Suffolk Police's Operation Crackdown.
Magistrates ordered Miller to pay £25 towards the cost of bringing the case.
The court heard how he had been diagnosed with a terminal illness in 2003.
