A Lurgan man who apologised in court after being caught with cannabis has been handed a £450 fine.
The 22-year-old stated: “I am sorry for what I did, I have been treated with respect throughout.”
Jonathon Fee, of Silverwood Court, pleaded guilty to possession of a Class B drug at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.
Court heard that police on patrol in the Oxford Island area of Lurgan spotted a Volkswagen Polo, with two males inside, in a car park at around 7.15pm on August 18.
Officers approached the vehicle to ask what the two men were up to.
When they got to the car the defendant in the passenger seat passed out a bag containing a green substance which was suspected to be cannabis.
Fee made no reply when cautioned.
During an interview, he stated the drugs were for personal use and that he had purchased them for £30.
The defendant, who represented himself in court, said: “I am sorry for what I did, I have been treated with respect throughout.”
Fee was ordered to pay a fine of £450, along with the offender’s levy of £15, within 12 weeks.
