Our Mr Andrew Millar, Partner at RP Crawford & Co Solicitors this week concluded a serious drugs case for a client.

  1. On the 28th January 2020 police stopped a Range Rover vehicle on the Ravenhill Road.   Mr L was driving and a co-accused was the passenger.  10.92 kilos of cannabis was recovered from the vehicle: It was sealed in vacuum bags, which were wrapped in black plastic, each weighing approximately 1kg.
  2. Follow-up searches by Police of number of addresses; including storage lockups and an apartment uncovered a further 38 kilos of cannabis and £70,000 in cash.
