Barry Michael Liggett (37), of Mulderg Drive, Newtownabbey, appeared at Antrim Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena. He admitted possessing cocaine; being in charge of a vehicle whilst unfit; absence of insurance and obstructing police.
A prosecutor said the defendant initially provided false details to police. Officers found seven "deal bags" of cocaine in his jacket pocket and a bag containing 18 grammes of cocaine under the spare wheel in the boot of the vehicle.
A "home-made pipe" was found in the centre console. He refused to complete an impairment test. A blood sample showed cocaine and Diazepam.
A "number" of mobile phones were seized for examination but he refused to provide passcodes for the devices. A defence lawyer said it was accepted the defendant had a "poor record".
District Judge Nigel Broderick said Liggett had 50 previous convictions. He handed down a five months prison term, suspended for two years; banned the defendant from driving for two years and fined him £150.
The judge told the defendant: "Consider this to be your last chance. You have three separate suspended sentences hanging over your head. Put one foot wrong and you will go to prison."
