A 28-year-old man accused of drug related offences including importing cocaine has been sent forward for trial.
Tomasz Rokowski (28 ) with an address at 92 Cois Na Habhainn, Tuam, appeared before Galway District Court last week charged with possession of cocaine, contrary to Section 3 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, possession of cocaine with the intent to sell or supply, contrary to Section 15 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, as well as unlawfully importing a controlled drug, to wit cocaine, in contravention of Regulation 4(1 )(c ) of the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 1988 and 1993, at Deerpark Industrial Estate, Oranmore, on August 23, 2010.
Garda Alan Sheerin gave evidence of serving the book of evidence on the accused man on the morning of the court. Inspector Sean Glynn said that the Director of Public Prosecutions has consented to the matter being sent forward to the Galway Circuit Criminal Court.
Judge Mary Fahy remanded Rokowski on his own bail as set out by the High Court. When the matter came before the Galway Circuit Criminal Court sittings this week it was adjourned to the October 6 sittings when it is expected that a date will be set.
