A 43-year-old man who was found with five grams of cannabis and unlicensed ammunition has pleaded guilty in Albany Magistrates Court and fined $500.
Police Prosecuting Sgt Peter Yuswak told the court police searched Mr Wynne’s Nissan pulsar hatchback in Spencer Park at 7.50am on April 27.
When asked why Mr Wynne had the prohibited items he said he found the ammunition in the bush and was planning on smoking some of the cannabis before giving the rest away.
“I guess the lesson to be learnt here is not to pick up every item in the bush,” Magistrate Dianne Scaddan said.
Mr Wynne’s defence lawyer Janie Gibbs said that while her client has a significant criminal record, he made full admissions to police.
He was also ordered to pay court costs of $248.70.
