Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

A 44-YEAR-old man who pleaded guilty to sev­eral drug of­fences in the Ma­reeba Mag­is­trates Court has re­ceived a $1500 fine and no crim­i­nal con­vic­tion recorded on his his­tory.

Micheal An­drew Holzberger faced court on Mon­day, December 5, charged with one count each of pos­sess­ing uten­sils or pipes that had been used, pos­sess­ing dan­ger­ous drugs and pro­duc­ing drugs.

Po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant at Holzberger’s home and found sev­eral drug re­lated uten­sils that had been used.

The items in­cluded a plas­tic bot­tle with a hose at­tached on the side, a glass bong, a coke can and a milk bot­tle that had been fash­ioned into a bong and a set of scales.

Po­lice also found two clip seal bags, which con­tained 0.5 grams of cannabis in each.

They also found 5 grams of cannabis seeds in Holzberger’s pocket.

A search of the yard re­vealed a num­ber of cannabis plants grow­ing.

Holzberger said they were rel­a­tively new plants, which he cared for by wa­ter­ing them.
