Austin owns up to having $51 worth in cannabis

A St George man, who is accused of violating the Firearms Act, received an automatic 28-day stay at HMP Dodds when he made his first appearance in court today.

It is alleged that Darron Denico Austin of Glebe Land had a firearm in his possession on August 5 as well as two rounds of ammunition without a lawful licence.

The 23-year-old was not required to plead to the indictable charges but admitted to Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sergeant that he had 10.3 grammes of cannabis worth $51.53 in his pocket at the time.

Austin reappears in court on September 5.
