Ballymena Court hears '4,000' tablets found by police

FOUR thousand tablets were seized by police and a defence solicitor for a Ballymena man said given the quantity of Diazepam recovered, a pre-sentence report would be needed.

Lawyer John McAtamney was speaking at Ballmena Magistrates Court where he said Philip Dunlop (38), of Devenagh Way in the town, was pleading guilty to possessing Diazepam and cannabis on February 20 this year.

The court heard the defendant had previous convictions and the case was adjourned to September 30 for a pre-sentence report.
