Men found with cannabis ordered to make donations to Hope House
Two Ballina men charged with the possession of cannabis resin told Ballina District Court on Tuesday they were not habitual users.
Paul Coleman, 23 Amana Estate, Ballina and Kevin Newell, 1 Avondale Court, Ballina, both pleaded guilty through their solicitor Mr John Gordon.
When searched, the pair said they bought the drugs at a rock concert.
Garda Sinead Caheny and Garda Gerard Taheny carried out the searches on the two men on July 8 last year at Marion Crescent. Coleman (21), who is currently unemployed but seeking an apprenticeship, had enough cannabis for two handrolled cigarettes in his back pocket while Newell (20), an apprentice blocklayer, had enough for three handrolled cigarettes.
They avoided convictions by being given the benefit of the probation act and were each ordered to pay €100 to Hope House.
