Man had drugs in par­ents’ house

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

POS­SESS­ING €200 worth of cannabis in his bed­room at a house shared with his par­ents re­sulted in a court ap­pear­ance for Philip Tyrrell (31) of Glenn Lane, Camolin.

The court heard that on Novem­ber 21 of last year, gar­daí car­ried out a drugs search at the de­fen­dant’s ad­dress, which is shared with his par­ents and broth­ers. In his bed­room, they dis­cov­ered €200 worth of cannabis, which Tyrrell said was for his own per­sonal use.

Solic­i­tor Mark Quinn said that his client had ‘no in­come what­so­ever, not even so­cial wel­fare’. When the Judge asked about this, Mr Quinn said that his client had ‘anx­i­ety prob­lems’ and was un­able to en­gage with the Depart­ment of So­cial Wel­fare. Mr Quinn said that Tyrrell no longer used cannabis and if he were to take a drugs test, it would come back clear.

The case was even­tu­ally put back un­til Septem­ber 12 for a Pro­ba­tion Re­port, which Judge Haughton stressed was to ‘as­sist’ the de­fen­dant.
