23yo tries to hide pot in undies during police search, fails
A 23-YEAR-OLD Gympie man was caught trying to hide marijuana in his boxer shorts when police searched his house earlier this year.
On March 17, police entered Cameron Laurie Brown’s house to look for a wanted person. After seeing chopped marijuana in a bowl and a grinder, they searched the property.
Brown showed police to his room where they found a small amount of marijuana on the bedside table and, after searching Brown, a clip seal bag containing the drug in his boxer shorts.
The marijuana found weighed 15.36g total and Brown was charged with possessing a dangerous drug.
He pleaded guilty in Gympie Magistrates Court this week and was fined $150.
During the same search a second offender, Julian Kratochvil, 25, was charged with possessing a grinder which police found in his room.
Kratochvil pleaded guilty and was also fined $150.
