Warwick man with 189g weed says he was doing mates a favour

WHEN Brock Jules Hamers bought 189g of marijuana for friends, he thought he was doing them a favour rather than illegally supplying drugs.

At Warwick Magistrates Court on Wednesday, Hamers pleaded guilty to supplying and possessing dangerous drugs.

Police prosecutor Ken Wiggan said Hamers, 20, was in the back seat of a car pulled up at Allora in February.

When officers searched the vehicle, they found a bag containing seven smaller bags each containing 27g of weed, Sgt Wiggan said.

The court heard Hamers intended to redistribute the drugs in Warwick but had not made a profit.

Lawyer Phil Crook said Hamers lost his job earlier this year and thought he was doing his mates a favour.

"He was mistaken, but there was no commerciality to the matter,” Mr Crook said.

During sentencing, Magistrate Robert Walker scolded Hamers for his decision.

"It's not the case that you're doing anyone a favour, you're contributing to the proliferation of an insidious drug in the community,” Mr Walker said.

Mr Walker said the Warwick man had a limited history and cooperated with police.

He was given a $1200 fine with no conviction recorded.
