Cannabis resin found in vehicle

A MAN disqualified for a year after a small amount of cannabis resin was found in his car would have the ban lifted if he made a contribution of €250, Judge Tony Hunt ruled at the Circuit Court.

Joseph Cosgrove (24), Old Bundoran Road, had appealed the District Court disqualification.

State Solicitor, Mr. Hugh Sheridan, explained that Gardai had stopped a car being driven by Cosgrove on October 11th last. There was no tax on the vehicle and it was seized and conveyed to Sligo Garda Station.

A small piece of cannabis resin, valued €25, was found in the panel behind the steering wheel and Cosgrove admitted ownership.

At the District Court, Cosgrove had been fined €100 for having no tax, €100 in respect of the cannabis resin and because a motor vehicle was involved had been banned for a year, Mr. Sheridan said.

He said he would lift the disqualification if Cosgrove came to court on Friday with a contribution of €250.
