Woman fined $2000 after green frog drug deal is busted
GREEN frogs left a sour taste in the mouth of one would-be Gladstone drug supplier after she pleaded guilty to two charges in Gladstone Magistrates Court this week.
Rebecca Carol Pollock pleaded guilty to single counts of supplying dangerous drugs and possessing something used in the commission of a crime on Tuesday morning.
The court heard on January 11 this year, Pollock had used a mobile phone to text a buyer in relation to a supply of cannabis.
Pollock and her buyer exchanged texts which referred to green frogs, code words for cannabis, before police caught her handing a small amount of cannabis to the buyer.
Magistrate Russell Warfield warned Pollock of the perils of becoming involved in the drug trade, telling her she would eventually end up with her freedom taken off her if she continued down the same path.
The magistrate exercised his discretion and decided not to record a conviction against Pollock, but imposed a $2000 fine for both the drug-related offences.
