A Kalgoorlie-Boulder man who “dacked” a bag of meth that was not his while the car he was in got searched by police has been fined, despite the owner of the drugs coming forward. Thomas Luke Gibbons, 30, appeared in Kalgoorlie Magistrates Court on Monday where he pleaded guilty to one count of possessing methylamphetamine on June 26. Although he pleaded guilty to the offence, his lawyer Paul Holmes explained to the court Gibbons didn’t own the meth, but had “dacked it” — stuffed it down his pants — after seeing it inside the car as police were pulling it over. Mr Holmes said the owner of the drugs had written a statutory declaration admitting it was theirs. Magistrate Tanya Watt said no matter who owned the bag of meth, Gibbons was still in possession of it and liable. She said the man had similar offences dating back to May, but accepted the explanation. Gibbons was fined $1000 for having the drugs on him, and he was ordered to pay $264 in court costs.
