A Llandre man has been banned from the road for a year after appearing in court to plead guilty to drug driving.

Cameron Bulman, of Coedfa, appeared before Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court on 13 March.

The court heard that the 23-year-old was stopped by police while behind the wheel of a Vauxhall Vivaro van on the A487 at Bow Street on 17 September last year.

Tests showed that Bulman had benzoylecgonine – the major metabolite of cocaine – in his system exceeding the specified limit.

Magistrates disqualified Bulman from driving for 12 months and fined him £184.

He must also pay costs to the Crown Prosecution Service of £85 as well as a surcharge to fund victim services of £74.
