Costly mis­take

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

LEAVING his be­long­ings in a taxi to pay for the fare has cost Katene Me­hana $650.

The 31-year-old from Cameron Park told the court on Mon­day he’d had a fight with his room mate about 2am

on May 27 when he hopped in a cab to Proser­pine BP, couldn’t pay the fare and told the cab driver to keep his two duf­fel bags as pay­ment.

Af­ter the driver handed the items to police, they found a small quan­tity of methy­lam­phetamine and a pipe.

They con­tacted Me­hana through his driver’s li­cence and he was charged.
