Jail for drug offender

Gavin Brian Corson, of Catalina Drive, Catalina, will turn 21 in prison after being jailed for three months on drug charges on Monday.

The defendant pleaded guilty at Batemans Bay Local Court to two counts of possessing a prohibited drug, and was given a nine-month sentence with a three-month non-parole period.

Police facts state that he and another male were seen loitering at the Batemans Bay Hospital car park at about 9.25am on July 27 this year.

Police were called and soon arrived, and informed Mr Corson that due to his previous history with drugs and drug-related matters that they would have to search him.

When searched, Mr Corson was found to have two small bags containing drugs, namely ice and cannabis, in his underwear.

The ice quantity was 0.1 gram and the cannabis quantity was one gram.

He was arrested and taken to Batemans Bay Police Station and charged.

He will be eligible for release on February 11.
