POLICE seized more than 200 grams of cannabis from a Tanby Rd property at the Capricorn Coast.
Coel Kenneth Wayne Ibbertson, 34, pleaded guilty in Yeppoon Magistrates Court on September 3 to numerous drugs charges including possession, as well as possessing a weapon.

During the search, police also found a taser.
Ibbertson told police he had bought the weapon from a friend for $5 and had tried it out by giving himself a “hit on the leg.”

He was fined $1250 and no conviction was recorded.
