BRYCE Les­lie Hodg­son fronted Biloela Mag­is­trates Court on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 29 on one charge of pos­sess­ing a dan­ger­ous drug.

On March 20 this year po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on a Moura ad­dress.

The de­fen­dant was not present but his wife was. Po­lice found 22 grams of cannabis in a bed­room along with 3g of loose cannabis in a clip-seal bag. Hodg­son’s wife ad­mit­ted to po­lice the cannabis was hers.

Po­lice then found hy­dro­ponic grow­ing gear in the back yard of the house along with an egg car­ton full of cannabis seeds.

Clip-seal bags with bar codes and names of cannabis on them were also found in the back yard.

On Au­gust 14 the de­fen­dant was fi­nally found and taken in for ques­tion­ing about the mat­ter by po­lice.

He said the hy­dro­ponic gear was meant for grow­ing veg­eta­bles not cannabis.

Hodg­son pleaded guilty to the one charge be­fore Mag­is­trate Beck­in­sale and was fined $750 with a con­vic­tion recorded.
