A 21-year-old man was fined £100 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for possession of cannabis resin on June 27.

Malcolm McKeown, with an address at Parkmore, Craigavon, was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard that during a search of the defendant’s home address McKeown handed over seven grams of cannabis valued at approximately £35.

Mr Gabriel Ingram, representing the defendant, said McKeown would say he paid £10 and a very small 
amount of the drug was involved.
