On August 8, police attending another incident, searched Jacob Daniel Burraston’s Chatsworth house and found marijuana and several drug utensils.

Burraston said to police, “don’t worry about that, I’ll get rid of it.”
Police then found a shoebox with 3g of marijuana in a clip seal bag, a grinder, scales, and a chopped straw, and Burraston said he used the items for marijuana and MDMA.
The court heard Burraston, who receives youth allowance, had the drug for personal use, and had been cooperative with police.
He pleaded guilty to possessing marijuana and drug utensils and was fined $200.
