Raid uncovers ammo, cannabis and oxycodone

DRUGS, ammunition, scales and pipes were found when police raided the Maryborough home of Jasmaine-Lee Jasper Alice Weil.

The 24-year-old appeared before Maryborough Magistrates Court this week and pleaded guilty to possessing dangerous drugs, possessing property suspected of being used in connection with a drug offence, possessing utensils or pipes and possessing unauthorised and prohibited explosives.

The court heard that during the raid on Weil's home, police found oxycodone, digital scales, marijuana, a pipe and ammunition.

Weil, who had been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, was being supported by her mother, Alice, the court was told.

Defence lawyer Travis George said Weil had suffered mental illness and had committed serious self-harm in the past.

He said while there were a number of offences before the court, they were all relatively minor in nature.

Mr George said his client had been referred to mental health services and was getting treatment.

He said his client had spent a week in custody after failing to appear before the courts and that had an huge impact on her.

"She was very upset after spending a period of time in custody," he said.

But he said the time spent in jail had helped Weil mend her relationship with her mother.

Magistrate John Smith fined Weil $2250 for the offences.
