A personal trainer who stored cocaine in his house on behalf of a criminal gang has been jailed for eighteen months.

Gardaí also found thousands of euro when they raided the man's Dublin home on April 19th 2018.

Gardaí secured a warrant to search the home of Elmir Habibovic at Woodvale Avenue in Hartstown, Dublin on the back of a tip-off.

They found €25,000 of cocaine in a drawer in a dining room table. Almost €6,000 in cash was found in three separate envelopes in his bedroom.

Debt

The personal trainer claimed he only agreed to hold the drugs in order to pay off a €15,000 gambling debt.

In court today, Judge Elma Sheehan said she found it hard to believe his explanation given that he had sufficient savings to pay off such a debt.

She said his engagement in the drug trade was therefore for financial gain.

She sentenced him to three years in prison but suspended the final 18 months.
