Man Who Had Cannabis On Sale At His Home Receives Probation Act

The man's house was being used by a Polish gang involved in the sale of drugs.

A Polish gang was involved in the sale and supply of drugs in the Tullamore area, the local District Court was told.

A man who was formerly associated with the gang received the Probation Act when he pleaded guilty to having cannabis for sale or supply at his home at Eiscir Street, Eiscir Meadows, Tullamore on June 18 last year.

The 31-year-old appeared before Judge Catherine Staines for consideration of a probation report and Garda Rory Heffernan said he believed the man was not gaining financially from the sale of cannabis and had cut all ties with the gang he was involved with.

He added that in the past Busmanis had links with a Polish gang which was involved in the sale and supply of cannabis around Tullamore.

The garda said the man had a cannabis dependency himself.

Busmanis's solicitor, Donal Farrelly, said the defendant had not realised how serious it was to get involved with those people.

A man in good employment, he was getting the drugs for himself and his friends and was now ashamed and disgusted at what he had done.

Judge Staines noted the man's plea of guilty, the fact that he had co-operated with the Probation Service and the good support he had at home.

She applied the Probation Act but warned that if the man offended again he could be sent to prison for 12 months.
