Zilzie mum caught with knuckle dusters, drugs

Police found drugs and knuckle dusters during a search of a Zilzie mum’s residence in December.

Rebekah Elizabeth Rodgers, 36, pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrate’s Court last Thursday to possessing cannabis, drug utensils and a weapon.

The court heard that police attended Rodgers’ Falcon Crescent residence at 11.07am on December 27 last year.

In a bedroom, officers found 8.6g of cannabis and drug utensils.

They also found a knuckle duster weapon which was seized.

Rodgers told Magistrate Jason Schubert she had no excuses for her offending.

Mr Schubert fined Rodgers $850 and did not record a conviction.
