A window cleaner was caught with three bags of cocaine at the Kelly’s complex in Portrush.

Coleraine Magistrates Court was told that on at 2.10am on March 29 this year door staff told police they had detained a man on suspicion of possessing Class A drugs and at first police seized two bags of white powder and then found a third during a further search. There were three grammes of cocaine with a street value of £120.

The defendant told police it was cocaine and said it was for his own use.

A defence lawyer told the court on Monday April 25 his client was on a coach trip from Belfast and a third party offered him the cocaine for £80 and “foolishly” he bought it.

District Judge Liam McNally fined Michael Mulligan (23), of Altan Drive in the Lagmore area of west Belfast, £350 after the defendant admitted a charge of possessing Class A controlled drugs.
