Man faces trial for having €17k of cocaine for sale

A North County Dublin man charged with being in unlawful possession of cocaine for sale or supply in excess of €17,000 has been sent forward for trial.

David Warren (31), of Shamrock Park in Oldtown, appeared before Swords District Court accused of being in unlawful possession of the cocaine for sale or supply at his home address on January 17, 2014.

He is further facing two charges of being in unlawful possession of drugs.

A state solicitor served the book of evidence on the accused who has now been sent forward to the next sitting of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court. Judge Dermot Dempsey gave Warren the alibi caution, warning him that he has 14 days to provide to the State details of anyone he proposes calling as witnesses.

Garda David Smith told the court he had no objection to bail but ordered that Warren sign on three times a week at Swords Garda Station between the hours of 9am and 9pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and that he resides at his home address.


Judge Dempsey remanded Warren on continuing bail subject to the conditions and to appear again on June 19. He granted the application of Fiona D'Arcy, Warren's solicitor, for a senior counsel to be assigned to the case.
