Man caught pants-down with pot
A MAN who was caught pants-down with a small bag of cannabis has been fined.
Ipswich Magistrates Court heard police were called to a toilet block on Brisbane Street after concerns a man had been in there for a long time.
Christopher James Lawrence was searched and police discovered a small bag containing 1.4 grams of green, leafy material.
Lawrence, 27, pleaded guilty to possessing dangerous drugs and was fined $300.
But Lawrence, a disability pensioner, complained he had been on the toilet when police barged the door down.
“The door got kicked in while I was still sitting on the toilet,” Lawrence said.
“Isn’t that a bit too much?”
