CAUGHT WITH STEROIDS
COREY Peter Murphy said he wasn’t aware he was breaking the law when he purchased a pill press to make his own protein tablets. However that purchase, along with the possession of four different types of steroids led to him being charged by police on one count of unlawful possession of a relevant substance or thing and four charges of possessing a dangerous drug. The 20-year-old fronted Biloela Magistrates Court on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to all charges. The court heard that on May 4 police executed a search warrant on a Castle St address in Biloela. Murphy said he had steroids and showed police the pill press. Police also found a pill bottle with blue tablets which Murphy confirmed were steroids. They also found three 10ml glass containing pills which Murphy admitted were steroids, telling police they were for his own use. Magistrate Beckinsale fined Murphy $300, but only to be paid if he breaks the law again. A conviction was not recorded and Murphy was ordered to attend a drug information session.
