January 17, 2021

A man who was stopped by Gardai at Burnfoot has been fined €200 after drugs were found in his car.

David McCrystal, aged 37, was stopped by Gardai on June 5th last year.

Gardai stopped the car after they had been alerted there was a suspicious car in the area.

McCrystal, a father-of-three of Carrickrea Gardens in Derry, had no previous convictions and was fully co-operative with Gardai.

His solicitor Patsy Gallagher said McCrystal was not the subject of the Gardai’s initial suspicion.

Judge Paul Kelly fined McCrytsal €200 and disqualified from driving for one year.
