Man fined for having drugs
A BRAY man was fined ¤100 for possession of cannabis, and a further ¤100 for possession of ecstasy at Bray District Court on Monday.
Judge Murrough Connellan handed down the fines after hearing that Garreth O’Brien, 89 Cloverhill, had been searched by Garda Eamonn Furlong at Schools Road on May 28 at 9.20 p.m.
Garda Furlong found one cannabis joint and one tablet on O’Brien, who then signed the garda’s notebook. O’Brien has 24 previous convictions, the court heard.
