Boy (16) 'found with €7k of heroin'

A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was caught with more than €7,000 worth of heroin in his bedroom, a court has heard.

Gardai recovered the drugs and paraphernalia in March last year, the Dublin Children's Court heard yesterday. The north Dublin boy, now aged 17, who cannot be identified, has been charged with possessing the drugs for the purpose of sale or supply.

Judge Clare Leonard adjourned ruling on whether or not the case should stay in the juvenile court, and the boy was remanded on bail to appear again in December.
