A Dromara man has been fined £90 after pleading guilty to possession of class B drug Cannabis.

Stephen Russell (23) from Katesbridge Road, was also ordered to pay an offender’s levy of £15 when he appeared before Banbridge Magistrates Court last Thursday.

A PPS prosecutor explained how the offence came to light on 6 March when Russell was searched and he admitted the drugs, valued at £20, were for his own personal recreational use.

During interview he made a full admission. He told police he was receiving treatment.

A destruction order was granted for the drugs and Russell was given four weeks to pay the fine.
