Drug Charges Dismissed Due to Illegal Search

CRIMINAL CASE

The Presiding Magistrate in Hornsby Local Court dismissed drug possession charges against our 21 year old client from Wahroonga who was stopped and searched in a Pennant Hills carpark.

Police approached our client claiming he appeared to be ‘acting suspiciously’ by standing outside his car with a friend in an unlit area.

As usual, police alleged that our client appeared ‘nervous’ and ‘agitated’ and that he could not adequately explain why he was there.

They searched him and found 4 ecstacy tablets and a small amount of cannabis in resealable bags in his pocket.

The Magistrate found that this was not enough to ground a ‘suspicion on reasonable grounds’ and ruled the search to be illegal.

The evidence was then excluded and both charges were dismissed.
