Last Wednesday in court Kopa Albert admitted cultivation of cannabis and possession of drug equipment. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said police were at a nearby home on May 4 for an unrelated matter. They executed a search war- rant on Albert s property, due to the smell of marijuana wafting from his garage. He arrived home and was informed of a search, Mr Ford said Three mature cannabis plants were found growing in the garage in a fenced-off area, . supported by heat pumps and extractor fans on a timer system. Mr Ford said police also found a wooden box with a lighting sys- tem and young plants. He [the accused] said they were his and he was growing them for his own use. Defence counsel Julia Sanders said Albert used marijuana for pain relief. He lives with chronic kidney failure and has to go to Welling- ton hospital for dialysis. Ms Sanders said Albert smoked only once a night and had tried a number of prescrip- tion drugs, which did not work. He is quite honest with his medical advisers. They are quite aware he takes cannabis for his pain. He s in an unfortunate situ- ation where he has found an illegal drug which assists him at this time. Judge Tom Broadmore said people had often not fully looked into using legal medicine. I am increasingly not all that sympathetic to people saying they use it for pain relief. Judge Broadmore recom- mended a legal drug with similar effects. Police ordered destruc- tion of the drugs and equipment. Albert was sentenced to 60 hours community work. Fire exit gave booze thief easy pickings An Upper Hutt man repeatedly stole alcohol from a supermarket by sneaking through a fire exit. Teahoe Harrison pleaded guilty last Wednesday to five charges of shoplifting. He took 12 bottles of beer from Pak n Save Upper Hutt on February 14 and returned five days later to steal Matua wine, prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said. He left through the fire exit and made off on a bike. At 8.50pm on the same night he tried to re-enter, but found staff had locked the door. Mr Ford said Harrison came through the main entrance and took another two bottles of wine, before escaping through the fire exit. On the following Tuesday, he sneaked into the storeroom and stole cask wine, again leaving through the emergency door. Harrison finally returned four minutes later and took 15 bottles of Export Dry beer. Mr Ford said he admitted the facts as outlined when spoken to by police. He said he was just an idiot. He wanted to have a drink, but went about it in a stupid way. Duty lawyer Shane Robinson said Harrison had a drinking problem and things were steadily going downhill for him. He had just broken up from a long-standing relationship of three years and sought comfort in alcohol. Judge Tom Broadmore sentenced Harrison to 80 hours community work, six months supervision with drug and alcohol assessments, and ordered him to pay $352 in reparations. 'Stupid' dispute over $4 A brotherly dispute ended in a 17-year-old dam- aging the family home. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said Samuel Leith, who admitted wilful damage, became angry with his older brother because he had taken his tattoo gun. He attempted to break down his brother s bedroom door and kicked it three times. Duty lawyer Sarah Connell said Leith thought he had shoulder- barged the door a single time, but regretted his actions. He is angry with himself that he has upset his mother. Ms Connell said Leith s brother took his tattoo gun because he owed him $4. Judge Tom Broadmore said he did not need to tell the defendant how stupid the situation was. Leith was convicted and ordered to come up if called upon within six months. That means you need to stay out of trouble, Judge Broadmore said. Prison officer grew dope A former senior man- ager at Rimutaka Prison has admitted conspiring to sell cannabis to inmates. Jeffrey Reid, 45, pleaded guilty to culti- vation of cannabis and conspiracy to deal drugs in the Welling- ton District Court on Monday. Reid was in charge of a high security sta- tion at Rimutaka Prison. He worked for the Department of Corrections for about 20 years and was arrested after a month-long investi- gation in 2009. A deadlocked room at his Wellington home contained a hydroponic cannabis growing oper- ation with halogen lamps, fans, plant nutrients, thermo- meters and a hole made in the outer wall to help remove the smell. He was remanded on bail for sentencing on June 24. Corruption guilty pleas Rimutaka Prison corrections officer Johan Edwin Clarke pleaded guilty to six charges of corruption in the Wellington High Court a fortnight ago. Clarke is New Zealand s first corrections officer to be charged with cor- ruption. It was alleged the guard, who is an Upper Hutt local, smuggled items includ- ing methamphetamine, KFC and a UB40 CD for prisoners in exchange for sex, expensive wine and thousands of dollars in cash. He allegedly wore his prison uniform during the handover of drugs and other goods at H2OXtream and Trentham fire station between November 2008 and May 2009. Clarke will be sentenced next month.
