Smokey surprise for police attending disturbance
POLICE were at a block of units responding to a disturbance when they walked past a unit and watched its occupant sitting at a table with a bong.
Norman John Anderson, 57, pleaded guilty on July 28 in Rockhampton Magistrates Court to one count of possessing a dangerous drug.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Shaun Janes said police were called to units at Armstrong St, Berserker, for a disturbance on May 9.
He said about 7.20pm, police walked past Anderson’s unit, and saw him sitting at a table with a bong which had smoke coming from it.
Sgt Janes said police searched the unit and found 2.55g of marijuana and a bong homemade from a Coke bottle.
Defence lawyer Brendan Gimbert said Anderson smoked marijuana irregularly and usually when someone visited and brought it.
Anderson was sentenced to nine months probation with a condition of attending drug rehabilitation as directed. A conviction was recorded.
