The search warrant turned up a stolen motorcyle along with 28 grams of cannabis and 10 ecstasy tablets. The subject of the search faced drug and property charges.
The matter was dealt with at Shepparton Magistrates Court before Stuthridge M. The defendant pleaded guilty. Ms Molly Wooderson appeared for the prosecution. Mr Anthony Coote of Camerons Lawyers appeared for the defendant. He submitted that the defendant, despite a criminal record, had beenoutr of trouble and was trying to re-enter the workforce.
