A Banbridge man accused of possession of Class A and B drugs with intent to supply will face Crown Court proceedings.

The 28-year-old is also alleged to have offered to supply cannabis on three separate occasions.

Wayne Kennedy, of Hockley Terrace, appeared charged with two counts of possession of Class B, possession of Class B with intent to supply, possession of Class A, possession of Class A with intent to supply, and three counts of offering to supply Class B at Banbridge Magistrates’, sitting at Lisburn.

As the charges were read out, it was outlined that all of the alleged offences occurred between April 29 and September 6, of last year.

Standing in the court, the defendant made no objection 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 Ruairi Gillen made no contrary submissions.

District Judge Mark McGarrity said that he was satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer.

Kennedy was released on his own bail of £500 to appear before Newry Crown Court on a date to be fixed.
