Craigavon Magistrates Court

A Portadown man accused of offering to supply a Class B drug will face Crown Court proceedings later this summer.

Patrick McGeown, 34, of Churchill Park, appeared charged with two counts of offering to supply Class B drugs at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

The defendant confirmed his name from the dock as he submitted to the holding of a preliminary enquiry.

It was heard the alleged offences dated back to July 27 and September 9, 2018.

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

Defence barrister Damien Halloran made no contrary submissions.

McGeown was released on his own bail of £500 to appear before Craigavon Crown Court on July 9.

There was a curfew attached to the bail between 8pm and 6am, save for allowing the defendant to attend technical college on a Tuesday when the curfew shall begin at 9.30pm.
