A Lurgan man, who is accused of being concerned in the offer to supply three separate drugs, is to face Crown Court proceedings in the New Year.

Dean Robert Currie, (41), of Russell Drive, is also accused of two other offences.

He appeared at Craigavon Courthouse on Wednesday, December 29, for the purposes of a preliminary enquiry - the legal process during which a case is referred to the higher court.

Currie faces allegations of possessing a Class B controlled drug, namely cannabis, on November 28, 2018.

Furthermore, the defendant faces a count of offering to supply a Class A controlled drug, namely ecstasy, on November 27, 2018.

Between the dates of January 1, 2018 to November 29, 2018, the defendant has been charged with being concerned in the offer to supply a Class B controlled drug, namely cannabis, as well as two counts of being concerned in the offer to supply a Class C controlled drug, namely pregablin and diazepam.

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

Defence counsel made no contrary submissions.

District Judge Bernie Kelly, satisfied there was a prima facie case to answer, released Currie on bail on the same terms to appear at Craigavon Crown Court on February 15 next year.
