Cocaine found after police see 'abandoned' car in County Antrim

POLICE saw an 'abandoned' car at Oriel Park in Antrim town at 12.30am on July 18 this year and when they located the owner 100 metres away four small bags of cocaine were found.

Paul Quinn (27), of Brantwood Gardens in Antrim, admitted possessing Class A drugs.

Antrim Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, heard the defendant said he bought the drugs for £200.

Defence barrister Grant Powles said the defendant had substance addiction issues but is currently getting help with a Community Addiction Team.

District Judge Nigel Broderick said "Class A drugs cannot be tolerated" and put the defendant on Probation for a year.
