By BBN Staff: A man busted with more than a half kilo of weed has been given until next March to pay a fine of $10,200 or spend two years in jail.

Yesterday Dwayne Hulse, 28, appeared before Senior Magistrate, Ann Marie Smith, and pleaded guilty.

On January 11, police had conducted a search at his home on the Philip Goldson highway during which cops saw him trying to throw away an object which appeared to be a small catch of weed.

 Police recovered that weed but continued their search which led to the discovery of a plastic bag under his bed which contained more weed.

When weighed the weed amounted to 539 grams or little more than a pound.

 Hulse had previously offered a ‘not guilty’ plea but yesterday decided to change his plea to ‘guilty’.
