Back­packer, Chloe Belsey pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing LSD, Mar­i­juana and a grinder. On July 31 about 8:45pm po­lice spot­ted a car parked in a Ma­reeba park. After con­duct­ing a search of the ve­hi­cle po­lice lo­cated a grinder with green residue and a small brown pa­per bag con­tain­ing four squares weigh­ing 6.1 grams. Tests came back con­firm­ing the squares to be LSD. Belsey said in court on Mon­day Au­gust 14 that she had bought the drugs be­cause her mum had come over for a holiday and she bought it for her. Belsey said she tried LSD once at a fes­ti­val and she told her mum about the ex­pe­ri­ence and she wanted to try it. Mag­is­trate Tom Braes said they were very se­ri­ous drug charges and if he sees her back in court again he will im­pose heavy penal­ties which may in­clude a term of im­pris­on­ment. She was fined $1000 and given a 12 month good be­hav­iour bond.
