Druggie’s plea: ‘I want to be drug tested’

JULIEN Edward Martin basically pleaded with Acting Magistrate John Milburn for ongoing drug testing.

Mr Milburn naturally obliged.

The 35-year-old pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrates Court on September 17 to drug and utensil possession offences.

The court heard that on August 26, police executed a search warrant at Martin’s Lamberton St residence.

In his bedroom they found a clip-seal bag containing a gram of cannabis seeds.

Martin told police the sharp would have been used for injecting methamphetamine.

Mr Milburn placed Martin on nine months’ probation.

He also ordered Martin submit to ongoing urine tests.
