A 25-year-old man was fined £150 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for a drugs offence.

Philip Gerard Gentle, Limefield Rise, Craigavon, admitted unlawful possession of herbal cannabis on November 25. He was also ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.

The court heard a small amount of herbal cannabis was found during a search of his house.

A defence solicitor said the amount involved was just over a gram and was for Gentle’s own personal use.

He had received a caution previously for a similar offence.
