Fined for possession of drug

Have your say

A 29-year-old man was fined £150 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for a drugs offence.

John Christopher Whitla, Garrymore, Craigavon, admitted possession of cannabis resin on April 3.

He was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that police saw the defendant and told him they wanted to search him. Whitla handed over a small piece of cannabis resin.

A solicitor for the defendant said it was for his own personal use.
