DRUG BUST Ireland’s dumbest criminal caught operating drugs business selling cannabis worth thousands on social media
Shane Valentine appeared at Letterkenny District Court in Co Donegal charged with having drugs for sale and supply

IRELAND’S dumbest criminal has been caught operating a drugs business selling thousands of euro of cannabis openly on social media.

Shane Valentine appeared at Letterkenny District Court in Co Donegal charged with having drugs for sale and supply.



Quote:
Garda Derek Connaughton was monitoring social media and saw a posting by Valentine, aged 23, openly selling drugs.

When Gardai raided his home at Glenaughty Close in Letterkenny on July 19, 2017, they found more than €7,500 of cannabis hidden in a false compartment in a tumble dryer.

A further search of the house uncovered €960 in cash, a weighing scales and two mature cannabis plants worth a further €1,600.

Valentine, who is originally from Dublin, has a total of 26 previous convictions for a range of offences including assault, robbery and criminal damage.

The bust wasn’t Valentine’s first money-making scheme to go wrong.

He previously pleaded guilty to using a stolen credit card which was used to buy more than €185 worth of pizza at Dominos Pizza in Letterkenny on November 1st, 2016.

Solicitor for the accused, Mr Frank Dorrian, told the court that Valentine had been in care from the age of 3 to 17 and had very little contact with his biological parents.

Mr Dorrian said his client had a partner and a child and had been given an opportunity to distribute cannabis.

He said that he had found himself homeless before this and saw this as an opportunity to get his family “over the line.”

Mr Dorrian said: “He did not see himself as a major player and got caught very early on.”

Mr Dorrian added that there had been another raid on Valentine’s rented house but nothing was found.

The solicitor said that Valentine wore this as a badge of honour to let Gardai know that he was now trying to go straight.

Tool. But it’s only a matter of time when you’ll be able to buy weed online and have it delivered to your door. Decriminalisation of cannibis will happen at some stage in the 2020s.

€185 of pizza in one go? He could at least have bought some decent clothes.
