Man was disorderly on St Patrick’s Day…then cannabis was found hidden in his sock

Ballymena Magistrates Court

Police were called after a report of a disorderly man banging on a door and shouting on St Patrick’s Day this year and then they found cannabis in his sock.

Reece Devine (22), of York Lodge, Antrim, had the case mentioned at Ballymena Magistrates Court.

Defence barrister Ben Thompson said the defendant’s partner recently gave birth and Devine had vowed to change his ways and is now off cannabis.

District Judge Nigel Broderick said he would put the defendant “to the test” and deferred sentencing for six months.
