Woman is warned of ‘hard lines’

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS | PROSERPINE MAGISTRATES COURT -

IF SARAH Jane Ble­witt comes back be­fore a court for drug-re­lated of­fend­ing she’s been warned by Mag­is­trate Si­mon Young, “we’ll be tak­ing some very hard lines”.

The 34-year-old ca­sual hos­pi­tal­ity worker pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing dan­ger­ous drugs as well as uten­sils and items used in the com­mis­sion of crime.

At 7.30am on June 9, po­lice found a quan­tity of cannabis and methyl am­phet­a­mine, along with glass pipes and sets of dig­i­tal scales in a Can­non­vale home where Ble­witt was de­tained.

Mr Young said he was es­pe­cially con­cerned about this type of of­fend­ing when he learned she had 50/50 cus­tody of two chil­dren.

Ble­witt was placed on a $750 good be­hav­iour bond for six months and or­dered to at­tend drug di­ver­sion.
