A COUPLE, one who was armed while walking down Monkland St with a collection of drug material, was caught out by police on patrol.

Roslyn Lee Ann Marsh, 29, and Jonathon Robert Kerr, 30, both pleaded guilty to an array of charges in Gympie Magistrates Court on Monday. Marsh, who appeared in custody, pleaded guilty to nine charges, including supplying methylamphetamine.

The court heard police stopped to talk to her and Kerr on Monkland St on March 13, and searched their belongings.

They found Marsh with a set of digital scales suspected to have been used in the commission of a drug offence, $100 suspected to the proceeds of drug offences, and drug utensils.

Kerr, who initially caught police attention by riding a bicycle without a correctly fixed helmet, was charged with possessing three bags of methylamphetamine totalling 3.25g, possessing a knife in public and drug utensils including a glass pipe.

Kerr pleaded guilty to the drugs charges, as well as two charges of failing to appear on April 28, breaching bail on May 10, and possessing amphetamine at a River Rd service station on April 21.

He further pleaded guilty to possessing a knife, a glass pipe and amphetamine on April 13, at Lawrence St.

Kerr was given 12 months probation.

For the drug and utensil possession offences, she was placed on six months good behaviour with $800 recognisance. She was also given 12 months probation for supplying drugs and possessing proceeds of a drug offence. One month jail, suspended for 12 months, was also handed down to Marsh for each of the failing to appear offences.
