Man pleads guilty to possessing over €600k of drugs at North Cork farm
A 44 year old man has been jailed for five years after he pleaded guilty to possessing over €600,000 worth of drugs at his isolated farm in North Cork.
Michael O’Brien from Bweeng pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis herb, cannabis resin and cocaine for sale or supply.
Michael O’Brien admitted at Cork Circuit Criminal Court possessing all three drugs with a total street value of over €600,000 for sale or supply on February 23rd last.
The court heard the drugs were found hidden at different locations on the farm, including in one case under manure on the farm where O’Brien was storing them for a drugs gang.
Judge Sean O Donnabhan was told that O’Brien had co-operated fully with gardai and entered early guilty pleas and had no previous convictions.
He was sentenced to seven years in jail for the offences but suspended the final two years on condition that he be of good behaviour upon his release.
