Man caught with cannabis joint in car at Redburn Country Park

A HOLYWOOD man caught with a cannabis joint in a parked car at Redburn Country Park on April 18 in 2020 has been fined £100.

Jonathan Martin (27), a 'Subway' worker, of Brown's Park, had the case mentioned at Newtownards Magistrates Court.

A prosecutor said police detected a strong smell of cannabis from the vehicle and found a 'joint'.

A defence lawyer said the defendant had given a friend a lift and that person had offered the defendant a smoke of the joint which he refused.

Unknown to the defendant, the passenger had then put the joint in the glove compartment, the defence lawyer added.

However, despite the circumstances, the lawyer said the defendant was entering a guilty plea.
