A fine of £100 was imposed on a Portadown man last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for having a firework without a licence.
Andrew Lucas (24), whose address was given to the court as Churchill Park, Portadown, admitted having a Galactia rocket without a fireworks licence on December 8 last year.
The court heard the rocket was found during a search of the defendant’s home.
A barrister representing the defendant said the rocket had been there since Halloween and Lucas had forgotten it was on the premises.
A destruction order was made for the firework.
