Two drugs in sys­tem

NewsMail - - NEWS -

A DIS­ABIL­ITY pen­sioner was sur­prised to dis­cover she was charged with hav­ing not just one drug in her sys­tem, but two.

Ros­alyn Mar­garet Smith ap­peared in Bund­aberg Mag­is­trates Court but was mo­men­tar­ily taken aback when Mag­is­trate Belinda Mer­rin read out the charges.

On Novem­ber 25, Smith was driv­ing along Targo St about 6.40pm when she was pulled over by po­lice.

She was found to have methy­lam­phetamine and mar­i­juana in her saliva.

“Do you un­der­stand the charges?” Ms Mer­rin asked.

“Yeah, I thought it was go­ing to be cannabis,” Smith replied

Po­lice prose­cu­tor Se­nior Con­sta­ble Tina Bland then showed Smith a cer­tifi­cate prov­ing the two drugs were in her sys­tem.

Smith pleaded guilty to drug driv­ing, was fined $400 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months.
