Man admits offences connected to discovery of ‘£31,000′ worth of cannabis plants

1 Mins read

A man has pleaded guilty to charges in relation to the discovery of cannabis plants previously estimated by police to be worth £31,000.

Emil Zdunek (26), whose address was originally listed as New Row but who is now living at Lower Captain Street in Coleraine, has admitted cultivating cannabis and possessing the Class B drug.

The drugs were found on April 25 at New Row.

The case has been adjourned to mid-August.

At a previous court a police officer said workers in the area detected a strong smell of cannabis and when the PSNI arrived the smell was “over-powering”.

Officers entered Zdunek’s address which had blackout curtains and the defendant arrived and showed them a grinder and said he had cannabis in the building.

The police officer told the April court 31 mature cannabis plants were growing which had an estimated street value of £31,000.

Other items found at the scene included grinders, scales and electronic equipment.

In April, defence solicitor Sam Barr said that during a police interview the defendant said the 31 plants were for his own personal use.

The guilty pleas were entered on July 22 and the case adjourned for a pre-sentence report.
