CASE UPDATE: Man cleared of attempting to throw drugs into The Mount Prison in Bovingdon

A judge has cleared a Brixton man of attempting to throw drugs and mobile phones into The Mount Prison at Bovingdon.

But Nathan Braithwaite still faces a charge of possessing cannabis resin with intent to supply.

Luton Crown Court heard police officers seized skunk cannabis, steroids and mobile phones when they arrested Braithwaite in an alleyway.

Prosecutor Richard Reynolds said he was stopped at twenty past one in the afternoon of September, 6, 2018 (correct).

He made no comment to police questions.

Braithwaite, 24, of Moorland Road, Brixton, London SW9, pleaded not guilty to possessing 539 grammes of cannabis resin and two charges of attempting to throw or convey prohibited items into a prison.

Judge Rebecca Herbert found he had no case to answer on the last two charges.

The jury now has to consider only the charge of possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
