Bray People - - In Profile -

THE MORAL de­ci­sion of a Bray man to take drugs away from his young cousin saw him leav­ing court last week with two fines.

Gar­rett O’Brien, 89 Clover­hill, Bray, was be­fore the court on two charges of un­law­ful pos­ses­sion of drugs at Wolfe Tone Square West on Oc­to­ber 20 last year. O’Brien pleaded guilty to hav­ing cannabis and co­caine on his pos­ses­sion.

The De­fence So­lic­i­tor Mr. Con­way O’Hara told the Judge that O’Brien did have a bad his­tory with drugs but the co­caine and cannabis found on him he had taken off his young cousin to stop him from tak­ing them.

‘You could have flushed them down the toi­let,’ said Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan to the de­fen­dant.

‘I know Judge but I didn’t have time,’ replied O’Brien. For pos­ses­sion of cannabis O’Brien was fined ¤100 and for pos­ses­sion of co­caine he was fined ¤250 with both sub­stances be­ing re­trieved to the state for dis­posal.
