Man freed after one month in jail

A MAN was held in custody for almost one month after failing to appear at court for possession of 1gm of cannabis.

Police were called to a Toowoomba service station on July 29 after reports of a man acting suspiciously.

They spoke to Albury Edward Hinch, 21, of Boggabilla, who told them he had a clipseal bag of marijuana in his pocket and a further search revealed a second bag in his wallet.

He failed to attend the police station as required and he was later found at a Gin Gin service station on August 29 where he was arrested.

He yesterday pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court to possessing dangerous drugs and contravening a direction.

He was convicted and not further punished due to the 28 days he spent in custody.
