'Drugs run' gets man six years in jail

A Limerick man has been jailed today for transporting drugs for a local Limerick drug dealer.

23 year old Robert McInerney from O’Dwyers Villas, Thomondgate was found with €140,000 worth of cocaine at Dublin Port on his way back from Wales in 2005.

At the court session in Dublin today Mr. McInerney admitted doing the drugs run because he was in €10,000 debt.

He also said he was afraid to name the owner of the drugs he was caught with for fear of his life.

Judge Desmond Hogan sentenced the man to six years but suspended the last two years.
