Alison Warburton, prosecuting, said: "During the course of a search, police found a lock knife in a draw (sic) with money.
"Nunchuks were in the glovebox and knives in a sink behind the driver.
"The defendant was arrested and interviewed.
"Regarding the nunchuks, he said I wouldn't know what to call them but I know what they are.
"They are homemade, not ones you can train with.
"He said they belonged to someone else - an 18-year-old male - and the other male had brought them into the van in April because he was being bullied.
"He said I intended to give them back but it slipped my mind because I was busy with work.
"The throwing knife he said was used to cut open boxes and had been given by a kid on his round."*drumroll*
Freeborn John says...
If that feller asked me if I wanted topping, I'd be very careful what I said...I am open-mouthed in admiration, sir!
