A SECURITY guard has spent a week in custody and lost his job after having ecstasy tablets at a night club.

Lilu Miah admitted being in possession of more than 30 ecstasy tablets (MDMA) at Kartouche after buying them in a toilet.

The 21-year-old was searched by management and door stewards who found the drugs.

Police officers were then called to the club.

"When he was interviewed by police he told them he bought in excess of 30 ecstasy tablets from a man in the lavatory when they negotiated the price," said prosecutor Gareth Davies.

"He paid £60 for 30 tablets but because he was a regular buyer he had a few extra thrown in free."

The court heard Miah, who is now doing voluntary work, did not make an attempt to supply them in the club.

Neil Saunders, mitigating, said the possession of the tablets cost him greatly.

"He was a security guard but can no longer obtain employment (in this field) because of his conviction," said Mr Saunders.

Bench chairman Mike Osborne fined Miah, of Newcourt House, Pott Street, London, £75 and ordered him to pay £55 costs.
