Drugs, weapons offences for Loch Lomond man

A LOCH Lomond man has fronted court after police found drugs, a semi-automatic rifle and nunchucks on his property.

Gerod Colin Bloomfield pleaded guilty in the Warwick Magistrates Court on Tuesday to possessing amphetamines, marijuana, a glass pipe and the weapons.

The court heard police and the drug detection squad raided the property on October 25.

Police found 10g of marijuana stashed behind the bath and a small amount of the drug in a bowl.

The 41-year-old admitted to using the drug to combat pain.

Amphetamine residue was located inside several plastic containers but Bloomfield denied knowing what the powder and said the glass pipe had belonged to a former employee.

He denied using speed.

The court heard Bloomfield told police he had the nunchucks for martial arts training.

Magistrate Roger Stark said he was disappointed to see the man return to court, after having been convicted of similar drug and weapons charges in May.

Bloomfield, who was supported in court by his wife and daughter, was fined $1600.
