Grandmother had €70k drug stash in home
A GRANDMOTHER agreed to hold a suitcase containing almost €70,000 worth of cannabis, a court has heard.
Adrianne Bradley, 53, told gardaí she didn’t have a drink or drug problem but admitted that she smoked cannabis ‘every so often’.
She said she hadn’t been given any money and was expecting someone to come back and collect the drugs.
Garda Alan Flaherty told Séamus Clarke BL, prosecuting, that the drugs were found after gardaí got a warrant to search her home following a tip-off. Garda Flaherty told Dean Kelly BL, defending, that gardaí were satisfied that Bradley was vulnerable and used by others.
The seven bags of cannabis were discovered in a suitcase, locked within a second suitcase, the court heard. Bradley, of Moateview Close, Darndale, Dublin, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to having €68,154 worth of cannabis for sale or supply on August 11, 2015.
Judge Karen O’Connor ordered a probation report and remanded Bradley on continuing bail for sentencing to October 20.
