A search of a car revealed that a 21-year-old man had cocaine, cannabis and an Ecstasy tablet in his possession.

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.
