A man who was found in possession of Class A and Class C in his first drugs offence will have to wait until next month to learn his fate.
The 44-year-old’s solicitor told court that the defendant accepted he had a “problem with drug taking”.
It was heard that on May 17, police received reports of concern regarding the defendant who was last seen driving a Transit van.
The next day officers found the vehicle parked at a Maxol garage in Dungannon.
Police spoke to Fox and noted that his speech was slurred.
During a search of the defendant, they located four diazepam tablets and a quantity of cocaine.
Fox was subsequently arrested for the offences before the court.
Defence solicitor John McAtamney stated: “This is Mr Fox’s first drugs offence but he accepts that he does have a problem with drug taking”.
Deputy District Judge Gerry Treanor said that a pre-sentence report would be required in the case.
Fox was released on bail to appear on October 18 for sentencing.
