Police seize stolen canoe and mower

A 24-YEAR-old woman pleaded guilty to seven charges yesterday, including stealing a canoe and mower on Bribie Island.

Halena Garden, of Bongaree, was sentenced to nine months probation by Gympie magistrate Maxine Baldwin.

Charges of receiving tainted property related to an iPod and 11 stolen pots and plants.

Garden was also charged with possessing and supplying drugs, and four breaches of bail.

The court heard police found the canoe and mower when they searched her house in relation to the drug matters.

She admitted to police she had given a friend some amphetamines in exchange for the pot plants and that she sometimes obtained amphetamines for other people when she was getting them for herself.

During the search police found syringes, a diary that appeared to be a record of drug debts, cannabis, a pocket-sized set of scales, a bong and clip seal bags containing speed and Ritalin.

An arrest warrant was issued after Garden failed to report to police as part of her bail conditions. She presented herself to Gympie police earlier this month.
