Enniskillen Court House, RMGFH03

A KESH woman who was caught with cannabis in her car has been told if she returns to court on another drugs charge she’ll face a harsher penalty. 
Lavinna Crozier (24) of Crillan Road, Tubrid, Kesh appeared at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday charged with possession of Class B drugs after her car was stopped and searched in Enniskillen late last year. 
On Tuesday, December 8 police on duty at Loane Drive stopped a Volkswagen Golf and carried out a search of the car under the Misuse of Drugs Act, where they found a green herbal material on the dashboard. 
Police carried out a notebook interview with Crozier, who immediately made a full admission that the substance was cannabis which had cost her £25. 
Defence solicitor Michelle McVeigh said Crozier, who had one previous conviction, had admitted the offence right away, and explained the defendant had had a death in the family and suffered from depression. Ms McVeigh said it had been “a foolish act” and was not a habitual cannabis user. 
District Judge Nigel Broderick fined Crozier £250 and warned her to “resolve the issue yourself or face a harsher court penalty.”
