Furniture maker caught with drugs
WHEN police executed a search warrant at a Cooee Bay house they found Jake Thomas Louis in a downstairs bedroom.
That wasn’t all they found.
Also in the room were several used water pipes, a clipseal bag containing 20g of cannabis and another with 1.5g of methamphetamines in it, as well as a container with one gram of marijuana.
Louis, 27, pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrates Court on July 23 to drugs possession and utensils charges.
The court heard that Louis, a furniture maker, had no criminal history and he had since stopped taking methamphetamines.
It was told he had also taken steps to stop using cannabis.
Magistrate Jeff Clarke fined Louis $750.
