Two guilty of cocaine possession

TWO men yesterday pleaded guilty to possession of almost €5m worth of cocaine seized as part of a massive drugs operation last year.

Sean O'Donovan (45) of Ballinakilla, Bartlemy, Co Cork, and Richard Deutschenbaur (56) of Stora Slatlovagen, Alinggas, Sweden, pleaded guilty before Cork Circuit Criminal Court to possession for sale or supply of cocaine. The seizure was made on October 13 at Bartlemy in north Cork.

Judge Patrick Moran adjourned sentencing until June 22. Both men were remanded in custody.
