Kilogram of cannabis in home.

MORE than a kilogram of cannabis was allegedly found in a Bargara woman’s home after a police raid on Wednesday afternoon.

Fiona Louise King, 27, was granted bail in Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday after being charged with supplying drugs, possession of drugs, possession of utensils and possession of property suspected of being used for criminal activity.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said police raided on King’s Watson Road home about 4.30pm on Wednesday afternoon and found 1.535kg of cannabis in the house and shed.

The cannabis was allegedly found in a number of small clipseal bags in the house and shed, as well as in shopping bags.

A number of empty clipseal bags, three mobile phones containing text messages and six notebooks with notations were also found in the house, he said.

Sgt Stevens said police also found $7085 stashed in a fluffy slipper.

“When asked about the money, she provided no explanation for the amount of money, apart from the fact she dislikes banks,” he said.

Defence lawyer Edwina Rowan said King was unemployed and received a parenting payment for her two children, aged 12 and six.

Ms Rowan said King was willing to comply with bail conditions and was willing to provide a $2000 surety payment if needed.

Magistrate Neil Lavaring granted bail on the condition King continued to reside at her Bargara address and report to Bundaberg Police once a week.

King will reappear in Bundaberg Magistrates Court on November 29.
