Due to a history of drugs offences, the case against a 37-year-old was adjourned at Craigavon Magistrates Court for a pre-sentence report.

Bruno Cordoso, Dill Avenue, Lurgan, admitted unlawful possession of a class B drug, herbal cannabis, on June 19, 2014.

District Judge, Mr Mervyn Bates, said a possession offence had been dealt in 2013 by way of probation and an offence in 2014 by a fine.

He added that because this was a repetition of an earlier offence, a report would be necessary.

He adjourned sentencing until May 20 so that a report could be obtained.
