Cannabis, MDMA used before joy-ride
A Gladstone man was caught driving with two types of drugs in his system.
Jamie-Lee Clarke, 35, pleaded guilty in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday to drug-driving.
Police prosecutor Carl Spargo read the facts of Clarke’s case to the court and Magistrate Bevan Manthey.
On February 15, about 11am, police intercepted a black Holden and Clarke submitted to a roadside drug test.
When questioned, Clarke made admissions to using a relevant drug the evening before being intercepted.
Clarke’s saliva was sent to Queensland Health Forensic and Scientific Services for analysis, where it returned a positive reading for cannabis and MDMA.
Mr Manthey fined Clarke $400 and disqualified him from driving for one month.
