Father and son grew cannabis

AN IPSWICH father and son have faced court for growing and possessing cannabis.

Police raided an Eastern Heights home on February 26, with occupants Colin Edward Nelson, 46, and his son Kyle John Nelson, 20, present.

Officers located three cannabis plants, each about 1.5m tall, in a fenced-off section of the backyard.

Nelson Snr admitted to owning the plants and said it was "better to grow them at home than to buy it off the street".

Police found 216g of cannabis in Nelson Jnr's room and also found apparatus used for drying out the cannabis, including an exhaust fan and two lights. Both men admitted to owning various water pipes, grinders, bowls and scissors found around the home.

Nelson Snr pleaded guilty yesterday to permitting use of a place and one count each of possessing dangerous drugs, utensils and things used in the commission of a crime and was fined $1300.

Nelson Jnr pleaded guilty to producing dangerous drugs and one count each of possessing dangerous drugs, utensils and things and was fined $800.
