A MOTHER and daughter caught with cannabis in their home are today without their drugs and equipment.
Police found five bags of cannabis hidden in the kitchen bread bin when they raided the home of Penelope and Jules Bailey.
Jules Bailey, 22 was found smoking a joint at the time of the raid on December 14 last year.
Bailey appeared before magistrates in Ipswich with her 52-year-old mother Penelope Bailey charged with being in possession of the drug.
Both women admitted the charges at Wednesday's court case.
Sandra Dyer, prosecuting, told the court the search had revealed bags of cannabis, in both resin and herbal form, hidden in the kitchen of the house.

Ms Dyer said Miss Bailey had told police she spent between £100 and £130 a month on cannabis, for the use of both herself and her mother, who is 52.
She had denied however, knowing there was five bags of cannabis hidden in the kitchen bread bin.
In mitigation, Ian Duckworth said both women had been co-operative with police.
He said: "Nothing has been hidden by either of the ladies in this situation. The police have been aware of these two ladies and unless they change their ways they can expect more visits."
The court also heard this was Jules Bailey's first offence but that her mother had previous convictions for drug offences.
Both mother and daughter were fined.
Jules Bailey was ordered to pay a £140 fine and £55 costs and Penelope Bailey to pay a £150 fine and £55 costs.
The court also ordered that all their drugs and related equipment should be seized and destroyed.
