A woman has appeared in court charged with possession of drugs and having a large quantity of counterfeit bank notes.

Magdalena Zygadlewicz, 32, pleaded guilty to five out of six charges put to her at Norwich Magistrates’ Court.

Prosecutor Sally Harris said it followed a search of a property at Thetford on September 18 last year.

Among the discoveries was £240 in what are said to be fake £20 notes.

Speaking through a Polish interpreter she admitted possession of cannabis and almost 30g of amphetamine.

But she pleaded not guilty to having possession of currency that she knew or should have known was counterfeit.

She will stand trial over that charge on June 6. The court was told if convicted she could be jailed for up to six months. 

She also admitted drug driving, and having no licence or insurance when stopped near her home at Eastern Road in Watton on the same date.

She was given an interim disqualification until she is sentenced for the drug and driving offences on June 6.
