'Wild lad' on good behaviour bond after drug possession plea

GYMPIE man Craig Ian Jones was placed on a three-month good behaviour bond with $300 recognisance in Gympie Magistrates Court yesterday after pleading guilty to drug possession.

Jones, 40, was found with a gram of chopped marijuana when police at Noosa Heads checked his car on Noosa Parade on December 10 last year.

Magistrate Maxine Baldwin yesterday described Jones as a "wild lad" in the past, however said his life appeared to have taken a calmer turn.

Jones was ordered to do a drug diversion program along with the good behaviour bond.

No conviction was recorded.
