Teen ‘didn’t know drug was in pocket’

Irish Examiner - - News -

A teenager de­nied know­ing there was cannabis in his jacket pocket but the pros­e­cut­ing in­spec­tor said the youth was so in­tox­i­cated he would not have known if he had two turnips in his pock­ets. In­spec­tor Gary McPolin made this com­ment be­fore Judge Aingil Ní Chondúin at an in cam­era sit­ting of the ju­ve­nile court of Cork Dis­trict Court. Garda Niall Man­gan tes­ti­fied that he was sus­pi­cious of the 17-year-old on Main St in Car­ri­ga­line on Jan­uary 5 so he car­ried out a search of the youth. Judge Ní Chondúin said: “I have a lit­tle doubt, I am obliged to dis­miss. I am not happy dis­miss­ing it.”
