Judge Desmond Zaidan heard evidence how the defendant’s home was search by Gardai using a warrant. The value of the cannabis was approximately of €2,200.

Sgt Brian Jacob revealed that Gardai also discovered weighing scales and deal bags at the premises.

The court heard that the defendant made admissions and was cooperative. He said that he only supplied his friends with the drugs. He has no previous convictions.
