A LETTERKENNY man was found in possession of cannabis after being reported for knocking on doors in an apartment block has appeared in court.
Brian Crawford (33) of Whitethorn Close, Letterkenny, was before Letterkenny District Court.
The court heard that on August 7, 2020, Gardaí received a report of a male knocking on doors in an apartment block at Rosemount Lane, Letterkenny.
Crawford was intoxicated and became verbally abusive to Gardai and other people who were present.
Gardaí believed that Crawford went to the wrong location thinking he was going to a party.
Upon being searched, an amount of cannabis, to the value of €25, was found on Crawford.
Solicitor for Crawford, Mr Frank Dorrian, said his client was a 33-year-old who had been abstinent from substances but had a ‘relapse’ during lockdown.
“He has had an otherwise blameless life and the matter is utterly regretted,” Mr Dorrian said.
Judge Paul Kelly said that if Crawford, who has no previous convictions, paid €150 to Letterkenny Youth and Community Club, he would strike the matter out.
