Man remanded on €35,000 Midlands drugs charge

A book of evidence is to be served on a man accused of falsely imprisoning three gardaí in Portarlington last year.

Garda Sergeant JJ Kirby said on the date in question the gardai were on patrol in Portarlington when they observed a male acting suspiciously. They followed the man into an apartment and the defendant allegedly locked the three gardai in, said Sgt Kirby.
