A POLISH man has appeared in court charged in the connection with the discovery of a cannabis grow house in rural West Limerick.

Piotr Glebocki, aged 46, has been charged with cultivation of drugs after a number of cannabis plants were found at a home in Bohard, Kilmeedy last Wednesday, December 5. Mr Glebocki spent last weekend in prison after he was remanded in custody following an appearance at Kilmallock Court on Friday. Garda Jason Mitchell of Newcastle West gardai told the court that after he was formally charged last Thursday, Mr Glebocki replied: “What can I say, I’m guilty”.

At Newcastle West Court this Tuesday solicitor John Lynch, defending, said that no bail application was being made yet. Mr Lynch said that there are “questions over [Glebocki’s] identity documents”, and requested a further remand in order to rectify the issue.

Speaking through an interpreter, Mr Glebocki said that he agreed to being further detained in custody.

Judge Mary Larkin adjourned the case until December 21.
