Two ecstacy pills worth $50 land man with trip to court

A WARWICK man has been fined $300 after he was found with two ecstasy tablets.

Police found the pills in Aaron Ross Beare's backpack, as well as text messages that suggested the man intended to sell them.

The 22-year-old was a passenger in a car pulled over on the corner of Wood and Wallace Sts in November last year.

Beare allowed police to search his backpack, and during this they discovered two blue pills with the word 'safe' stamped on them.

On inspection of Beare's mobile phone, police found messages used in the commission of supplying drugs.

One read: "do you want any blue safes? Just gotta get rid of two".

Beare admitted to police he had attempted to sell the pills at $25 each.

He pleaded guilty to three drug-related charges and was fined $300 by Judge Ian Dearden.

"I hope you've learnt from this experience," Judge Dearden warned.

He went on to suggest the man to turn his life around.

"Sometimes bad things happen, then good things happen afterwards," he said.
