Lee McAreavey, Tullygally, Craigavon, admitted three drugs charges last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.

The court heard police stopped a car on the Portadown Road, Lurgan. A search revealed that McAreavey was in possession of the cocaine, herbal cannabis and an Ecstasy tablet. He had a previous caution for a similar matter.

District Judge, Mr Mervyn Bates, said the cocaine charge was particularly concerning and adjourned sentencing until April 1 for a pre-sentence report.
