Cookstown man jailed for two months for possessing £600 worth of cannabis


A Drapersfield man has been jailed for two months after he admitted possession of £600 worth of cannabis.

Police searched the home of Paul John Crawford, 45, from Tullyveagh Road, on June 11 and December 1, discovering suspected cannabis on both occasions.

His solicitor said that the drug was for her client’s own use.

She further said that a breach of bail on March 9 had been due to ill health and that he had been in custody since March 12.

District Judge John Meehan imposed a sentence totalling two months as well as a fine of £100.
