Police detected 'pungent smell of cannabis' at property

POLICE who went to search an address in Newtownards detected what a prosecutor told the town's Magistrates' Court was a "pungent smell of cannabis emanating from the house".

Aaron Keery (24), of Balfour Street, had 15 grammes of cannabis and also had three fireworks without a licence on September 30 last year.

He admitted charges of possessing cannabis and having fireworks without a licence.

District Judge Amanda Brady fined the defendant £75 on the drugs matter and £10 for each firework along with a £15 offender levy.
