Bong and drugs fly as man flees raid in Hervey Bay

A MAN fled out the back door of his Kawungan house during a police raid, dropping drugs and utensils on the way.

Samuel Jacob Adamson-Roberts, 20, pleaded guilty in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Thursday to possessing and supplying dangerous drugs, possessing drug utensils and failing to keep drugs in his possession.

When police raided Adamson-Roberts' home on October 2, they saw him flee and throw what was later identified as a bong over a fence.

He also dropped a clipseal bag with 96 assorted capsules in the yard.

Police identified some as Demazin cold tablets.

Adamson-Roberts told police the remaining tablets in the bag were "eccies" (ecstasy).

He said he owned the bong and used it to smoke cannabis.

Police also found an ice pipe, 1.3g of cannabis seeds, a cannabis bud and a substance Adamson-Roberts said he thought was synthetic speed.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Jeanette Grigoris told the court Adamson-Roberts had supplied his sick mother with marijuana to help her sleep and eat.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell said the circumstances were extraordinary.

"Unfortunately for your mum and yourself, these drugs (the marijuana) are illegal," he said.

Adamson-Roberts was placed on probation for 18 months. A conviction was not recorded.
