A BOURNEMOUTH teenager has appeared in court for a drug offence, possessing an air gun and breaching a court order.

The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at a youth court hearing at Poole Magistrates' Court on July 7.

He admitted having one gram of MDMA in his possession and a carbon dioxide powered air pistol in Poole on April 24.

The defendant also admitted breaching the requirements of a youth rehabilitation order made by the same court earlier this year after he failed to attend appointments.

Magistrates issued a new youth rehabilitation order whereby the boy must present to a responsible officer for 10 days and participate in activities.

He was also given an overnight curfew to remain at his home.

The bench ordered the payment of a £22 surcharge and for the drugs and air weapon to be forfeited and destroyed.
