A Letterkenny man with a series of drugs convictions has been jailed for ten years by a Cavan Court.

Bernard Alcorn of Cluain Ard, Letterkenny faced charges of possession of drugs for sale or supply under Section 15A Misuse of Drugs Act, 1977/8

In April of 2010 in a joint operation between Donegal Gardaí and the Cavan/Monaghan Divisional Drugs Unit, a van travelling on the N2 was stopped and searched.

It was reported at the time that Heroin with an estimated street value of €20,000 was recovered.

The Court heard from investigating Gardai that Alcorn had 38 previous convictions, including Possession of Drugs for Sale/Supply, a number of road traffic Offences, Burglary, Theft, Public Order and Assault.
