A Craigavon pensioner accused of possession of cocaine with intent to supply is to face the Crown Court next month.
Stephen Mullan (70), of Carrigart Crescent, appeared at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court last Friday for the purposes of a Preliminary Enquiry (PE), the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.
He is charged with possession of a Class A with intent to supply, possession of Class A drugs and possession of criminal property.
As the charges were read, it was heard that the offences are alleged to have been committed by the defendant on February 25, 2021, with the Class A drugs that the defendant is accused of possessing being cocaine.
Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.
District Judge Bernie Kelly, satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, released the defendant on bail of £500 to appear at Craigavon Crown Court on June 23 for arraignment.
