DRUG GROW HOUSE MAN TOLD: ‘YOU’RE A BIT LONG IN THE TOOTH TO BE DOING THIS’

first_imgA JUDGE has reprimanded a 53-year-old man who was attempting to start a cannabis grow house in his house in Donegal.Conal Gillespie admitted having seven half-grown cannabis plants and four dead cannabis plants in the attic of his Inishowen bungalow.Inspector David Murphy told Carndonagh District Court that the cannabis – worth around €700 – was found during a Garda search of Gillespie’s home at Carrowkeel, Quigleys Point on September 17. A defence solicitor said the 53-year-old is a highly intelligent academic and language translator.“This was essentially a bit if curiosity to him. It wasn’t a successful operation as evidenced by the dead plants,” said the lawyer.Judge Kelly told the defendant: “You’re a bit long in the tooth for this sort of operation Mr Gillespie.”Judge Kelly adjourned the case until December, ordering Gillespie to make a €250 donation to Clonmany Youth Club.DRUG GROW HOUSE MAN TOLD: ‘YOU’RE A BIT LONG IN THE TOOTH TO BE DOING THIS’ was last modified: October 26th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cannabischargescourt casequigleys pointlast_img read more
