Mackay man fined $1,000
A Mackay Man who is on parole for serious drug offences has been fined $1,000 for possession 0.1 grams of methamphetamine and possession of drug taking equipment.
Keith Grace who is on parole from a five-and-half- year jail sentence was convicted of three drug offences for possession of an illegal drug, possession of drug utensils and property used from drugs.
But Acting Mackay Magistrate Muirhead said he took into account that the Queensland Parole Board took no action when it could have suspended Grace’s parole.
However Acting Magistrate Muirhead ordered that the brass pipe and drug utensils be destroyed.
Acting Magistrate Muirhead also added that it would be a different story, if there were any more drug offences.
