Man nabbed with pot, meth and testosterone

A YAMANTO man has been warned to stay away from drugs or risk spending more time inside a court room.

Bradley Clifford Edwards, 21, pleaded guilty on Wednesday in Ipswich Magistrates Court to four counts of possessing dangerous drugs.

He also pleaded guilty to possessing drug paraphernalia.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Jo Colston told the court police intercepted a vehicle for a random breath test on December 1, 2015. Edwards was a passenger in the car.

She said that a subsequent search of the vehicle resulted in police locating 8.4g of Cannabis which Edwards admitted to owning.

Sgt Colston told the court police then went to Edward's house on December 19, 2015 for an unrelated matter where more drugs were located.

She said a police search of his bedroom uncovered one gram of both cannabis and methamphetamine, along with two vials of testosterone.

His defence lawyer told the court Edwards was working full-time as an agriculture contractor and had no criminal history.

He said Edwards co-operated with police and was remorseful for his actions.

Magistrate Virginia Sturgess placed Edwards on a $600 good behaviour bond for a period of six months.

She further ordered he attend drug counselling.

"You have a lot to lose if you continue your involvement with drugs and ultimately the police," she said.

"If you do not want to repeat this experience of coming to court then you need to stay away from drugs altogether."
