Couple Arrests For Having Afternoon Sex On Police Station Wall

DID you see the couple having sex up against the wall of Gloucester police station at 5:30pm in the afternoon? Two uniforms did.

They both had their trousers around their ankles which exposed their bare buttocks. The male was thrusting towards the groin area of the female and it was clear what was happening.

Gloucester Cannabis Farmer Goes Free Because Judge Says His Plants Are Rubbish

TO Gloucester Magistrates’ Court, where District Judge Joti Bopa-Rai is looking at photos of Peter Bowkett garden-grown cannabis crop.

Says the judge, originally from India:

“These plants are in a pretty sorry state – there’s not much left of them. Where I come from they (cannabis plants) grow liberally and are not a banned drug.”

Bowkett, of Harrison Way, Lydney, admits to producing cannabis and possessing cannabis and heroin. The weed is five three-foot high cannabis plants behind his garden shed.

Say the busy police, who arrested him and took him to court:

“The defendant then volunteered to hand over a small quantity of cannabis and 2.1 grammes of heroin, with a street value of £210. He said he found the plants in woodland two days earlier and dragged them home. The defendant has previous convictions, the last one being in May of last year for possessing heroin.”
