A Lurgan man accused of offering to supply both cannabis and cocaine will face Crown Court proceedings in the New Year.

Jack Coleman, 27, of Shankill Street, appeared charged with possession of Class A, possession of Class B, offering to supply Class A and offering to supply Class B at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

As the charges were read, it was heard that the defendant was alleged to have been in possession of both cocaine and herbal cannabis on March 10 this year.

Coleman is also accused of offering to supply cocaine on January 18 and cannabis on February 18.

Standing in the dock, the defendant submitted to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

Prosecution submitted that based on the papers before the court there was a prima facie case to answer.

Defence barrister David McKeown made no contrary submissions.

Coleman was released on his own bail of £300 to appear at Craigavon Crown Court on January 16 for arraignment.
