Portadown man fined after cannabis found at party in house


When police called at a house in Portadown after complaints about a party they found cannabis on the premises.

Stephen McLoughlin (19), Ulsterville Park, Portadown, was fined £200 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for possession of cannabis resin on October 1 last year.

A clear plastic case on top of the fireplace was found to contain tobacco and cannabis. McLoughlin admitted it belonged to him and that it was cannabis.

A solicitor for the defendant said he took the matter very seriously and it was a very small amount detected.
