A Belle Vue man has found himself on the wrong side of the law after police found cannabis in his home.
Charged with possession of 93 grams of cannabis is Arien Fahie.
He pleaded guilty to the charge when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Tamia Richards on Tuesday.
What the court heard happened
The court heard that on May 3, police executed a search warrant at Fahie’s residence for stolen jewellery.
When asked if he had anything illegal, he said that he had a quantity of cannabis in a knapsack next to his bed and pointed the police to his bedroom.
The court further heard that four transparent bags containing green vegetable matter suspected to be cannabis was uncovered.
When asked if he knew of the substance, he said, “yeah its mine’.
He was subsequently arrested and brought to the Road Town Police Station where he was charged.
The cannabis was then weighed and was found to have a street value of $930. During an interview with police, Fahie confessed and indicated that he had bought the cannabis for personal use.
The unrepresented 23-year-old is scheduled to return to court on June 4. He remains on remand.
