Man was concerned in the supply of drugs

Ballymena Court

A Ballymena man has been ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work for being concerned in the supply of drugs.

William Burns (27), of Lewis Park, appeared at Ballymena Magistrates Court for sentencing.

A prosecutor said that in November last year police carried out a search under warrant and recovered two mobile phones and other items.

She said that although no drugs were seized, police believed the phones showed the defendant was supplying drugs.

Defence barrister Stephen Law said the defendant himself had been a drug user and was attending the Railway Street project in Ballymena.

The lawyer said a Probation report was “very upbeat”.

District Judge Nigel Broderick said the defendant had a very limited record and rather than send him to prison he was giving him Community Service.
