Man remanded over massive drug seizures

A MAN has been remanded in custody charged in connection with one of the biggest seizures of synthetic cocaine in the State.

Simon Crawford (28), of York Avenue, Portstewart, Co Derry, appeared at Letterkenny District Court where he faced one charge of possession of mephedrone and one of possession with intent to supply.

Customs seized 6kgs of the drug – worth €210,000 – in Gleann Tain Close, Letterkenny, Co Donegal, last Tuesday. Gardai seized €140,000 worth last Wed-nesday and €70,000 worth the following day.

Judge Denis McLoughlin remanded Mr Crawford to appear again on December 10.
