A 27-year-old man was charged with being concerned in the supply of cocaine when he appeared at last Wednesday’s sitting of Craigavon Magistrates Court.

Alan Hempkin, whose address was given as Old Court Manor, Craigavon, made a first appearance in the dock at last week’s court.

He is charged with unlawful possession of a class A drug, cocaine, on September 7 this year, being concerned in the supply of the drug, possession of cocaine with intent to supply, possession of criminal property and unlawful possession of a class C drug, Diazepam.

A police officer told the court that she believed she could connect the accused to the charges.

The case was adjourned until November 16 to allow the prosecution adequate time to obtain a full file on the matter.
