Ballymena 'Cannabis cookies' duo cautioned

By Nevin Farrell

Two men arrested after police received a report of eight people feeling ill after allegedly eating 'cannabis cookies' in Ballymena have been cautioned.

Jaroslaw Ignaciuk (35), and Tomasz Borowski (33), had each been charged with one count of possessing cannabis and one of supplying cannabis on November 20 last year.

When they previously appeared in court they were both listed as living at the same address on Ballymena's Cushendall Road.

Borowski now has an address at Churchfields, Rasharkin, and Ignaciuk's new address was given as Tardree Grove, Ballymena.

A prosecutor told Ballymena magistrates the charges were withdrawn and both men were given cautions.

Last November 20, the PSNI reported how officers attended an incident in the Cushendall Road "where an ambulance had been called for eight persons feeling ill after consuming cannabis.

"It transpires that they had eaten homemade 'special' cookies."
