Mother and son caught out for drug use and hiding utensils
A MOTHER has been reprimanded in court for not being a good role model to her 26-year-old son after the pair were both found in possession of a dangerous drug, and several utensils.
Mathew Shane David Conroy and Kerrie Jill Conroy faced Dalby Magistrates Court together after their house was searched, according to police prosecutor senior constable Jodie Tahana.
The court heard on June 5, Dalby police raided the family’s home.
Police located 5.5 grams of green leaf material, two water pipes, and a grinder in the laundry, that Matthew admitted belonged to him.
Police also found a bag with one gram of marijuana seeds in a bedroom, a bag with leaf material in the laundry, a grinder and a brass pipe belonging to Kerrie.
Duty Lawyer Claire Graham asked Magistrate Tracy Mossop to consider that the duo made early admissions to police about their drug use, and that child safety were aware of the incident as Matthew has one child in his custody.
The pair both pleaded guilty to possessing dangerous drugs and possessing utensils that had been used.
Matthew was fined $500 and no conviction was recorded.
Kerrie was also fined $500, and no conviction was recorded.
