Courier driver just holds onto job after drug offence

A GLADSTONE courier driver has just held onto his job after being caught drug-driving.

Daniel James Bowerman was pulled over on June 6, at 2.25pm, on the Dawson Highway.

He tested positive during a roadside drug test and admitted to recent drug use.

Further tests showed the presence of marijuana in his system.

The 32-year-old pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court last Tuesday to drug-driving.

Defence lawyer Cassandra Ditchfield said Bowerman was employed as a courier driver but had convinced his employer to keep him on doing warehouse duties during his disqualification period.

Bowerman was fined $400 and disqualified from driving for one month.
