Suspended prison term for drug possession
A man was given a six-month suspended prison sentence and fined $500 on drug possession charges yesterday.
Scott Dill, 34, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine with intent to supply and cannabis possession.
The offences took place on March 12, 2014 in Pembroke.
The court heard that Dill was in possession of 3.05 grams of cannabis and 7.58 grams of cocaine.
It was also said that $1,700 in connection with drug sales were seized from his Pembroke home.
Dill appeared in court on March 2015 and pleaded not guilty to the offences.
However, he switched his plea on October 10 this year and the matter was adjourned for sentencing on November 21.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe warned Dill that the suspended sentence meant if he reoffended over the next nine months, he faced serving his jail term.
