He faces three charges – possessing a Class B controlled drug, namely cannabis, possessing a Class B controlled drug with intent to supply, and being concerned in the supply of a Class B controlled drug.
The charges came after drugs were seized from a lorry in the Moorfields Road areea of Ballymena on Saturday morning.
