A SEARCH of a Craigavon man’s house uncovered a quantity of cannabis, the local court heard last Friday.

Twenty eight year old Isaque Duarte, of Carrigart Crescent, Craigavon, was fined £150 for unlawful possession of cannabis on February 2 this year.

The court heard that a planned search by police of the defendant’s home uncovered two small bags of herbal cannabis and some cannabis resin.

Duarte said it was for his own personal use.

A solicitor for the defendant said he was currently receiving treatment for heroin addiction.
