Police found a man with three-and-a-half ecstasy tablets when they were called to the cemetery in Marian Road, Boston.

Korol Frankowski, 23, told police he knew it was illegal to have the Class A drug and he had bought the tablets the previous day for £20.

Marie Stace, prosecuting, said police went to the cemetery on August 11 to investigate a report that ‘some males had been seen in there’.

In interview, Frankowski said the men were in the cemetery to ‘photograph a tree’.

Miss Stace said Frankowski was cautioned last year for possession of amphetamine.

Asked in court why he had the ecstasy tables, Frankowski replied: “I go with my girlfriend to Disneyland next week - that’s why I buy any.”

Last Wednesday, Frankowski, of Tunnard Street, Boston, was fined £150 and ordered to pay a £180 criminal court charge, £85 towards prosecution costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

He pleaded guilty to possessing ecstasy.
