A Karratha man has been fined more than $13,000 for a string of offences relating to the possession, sale and supply of cannabis and for arming himself with a machete while police executed a search warrant at his home. John Windsor appeared in Karratha Magistrate’s Court, via video link from Roebourne Regional Prison, where he pleaded guilty to all 44 charges against him, including 31 counts of offering to sell or supply a prohibited drug to another. Magistrate Edward De Vries fined Windsor $1000 for driving with no authority to drive, $350 for driving with a prescribed illicit drug in oral fluid or blood and $12,000 for all other offences, as well as disqualifying Windsor from holding a driver’s licence for nine months. Windsor was arrested in January after police noticed a high amount of foot and vehicle traffic at his home. When police forced entry into his home, Windsor approached police with a machete that he kept in a box in his bedroom as he thought an intruder was breaking in. During their search, police found about 56g of cannabis, a note with monetary values on it, and a phone with drug-related conversations and transactions. Windsor’s defence lawyer Benjamin Tyres, who appeared by via audio link, said his client suffered from epilepsy and was selling cannabis to fund his own use as it relieved his pain and seizures.
