Body-building drug dealer is freed
A the steroid loving thug who was part of a dissident republican plot to flood north Antrim with drugs was caught red-handed with £2,100 worth of cannabis and £865 of dirty money during a police search of his parents' home at Beech Drive, Ballymena.
Cops also found two machetes and a sword that belonged to heavily tattooed body-builder Ciaran ‘Del Boy’ McIlwaine, 24, whose boasts on the internet about injecting steroids have led to him being nicknamed ‘Water Muscles’.
McIlwaine was sentenced to two years in prison suspended for two years when he appeared at Antrim Crown Court last week.
