Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Pepe Brown told the court police executed a search warrant on Byron’s Denicull Creek property about 6.15pm on March 2 this year. Byron led the officers to the rear of his property where he had five cannabis plants growing in two separate garden beds, with the plants ranging from 1.6 to 3.6 metres in length.

Byron then showed police two sealed plastic bags and a plastic container, which held 21.6 kilograms of cannabis plants and four grams of dried cannabis.

Byron was given a 12-month good behaviour bond and ordered to contribute $500 to the court fund.
