Wexford People - - NEWS -

HAV­ING €100 worth of co­caine on his per­son when en­ter­ing Ire­land on board the Stena Europe has re­sulted in a court ap­pear­ance for Lon­doner De­nis Guerin with an ad­dress at 55 Mor­daunt Road.

The court heard that Guerin was trav­el­ling to Ire­land from Fish­guard to at­tend a fam­ily fu­neral when he was stopped by cus­toms of­fi­cers. A search un­cov­ered white power in his un­der­wear which he ad­mit­ted was co­caine.

The court heard that Guerin had four pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions in the UK, in­clud­ing for pos­ses­sion of cannabis and co­caine. Solic­i­tor Lana Do­herty told the court that her client had trav­elled over for a fam­ily fu­neral, which he was due to at­tend right af­ter the court case con­cluded. She said that the drugs were for her client’s own per­sonal use and that he apol­o­gised pro­fusely.

Upon hear­ing all the ev­i­dence, Judge Haughton fined Guerin €250 payable forth­with.
