Man fined $750 for having cannabis plants and seeds
TWO cannabis plants, a tin of seeds and 13.1 grams of cannabis found in the search of a property where Donald Rere Hallin lived cost $750 when Hallin appeared in the Gladstone Magistrates Court this week.
A bong was also found during the search, which Hallin admitted to using when taking drugs.
Also in court this week, Ashley Meagan Ratana was fined $200 and lost her licence for a month because of unpaid fines.
And failure to turn up for a drug diversion course cost Jake Michael McGuire $200 when he appeared in Gladstone Magistrates Court.
McGuire told police he had forgotten to attend, which earned him rebuke from Magistrate Barbara Tynan.
However, she decided not to register a conviction, giving him another chance.
