Derry man admits series of drugs offences after messages found on his mobile phone
6 Jul 2018
A 26-year-old man today admitted committing a series of drugs offences after he was re-arraigned at the request of his defence barrister at the Crown Court in Derry. Brendan Meenan from Deramore Drive in the Strathfoyle area of the city was released on continuing bail until he's sentenced for the offences on September 26. He pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis, guilty to being concerned in offering to supply cannabis, guilty to being concerned in offering to supply cocaine and guilty to being concerned in offering to supply the Class A drugs oxycodone and amphetamines. The defendant committed the offences on dates between August 2014 and November 2015. A prosecution barrister told Judge Philip Babington that most of the charges related to messages found on Meenan's mobile 'phone. Judge Babington ordered the preparation of a pre-sentence report and told Meenan that it would be in his best interests to co-operate with the probation services prior to his sentencing in two months time.
