A Lismore woman who police allege was armed with a knife when she was caught on Friday with a fake quantity, of what she claimed was the drug ice, told officers ‘it isn’t mine’.
Lisa Peters appeared in Lismore Local Court on Tuesday via video-link and was represented by solicitor Tom Ivey.
The 23 year-old faced eight charges including two counts of possessing a prohibited drug, two counts of supplying a prohibited drug, possessing ammunition without a licence, possessing a prohibited weapon and custody of a knife in a public place.
On Friday, between 6pm and 7pm, Ms Peters came to the attention of Lismore police.
When officers searched her it is alleged they discovered 5.89 grams of ‘counterfeit’ ice, a syringe full of ice, .47 grams of cannabis, ammunition and a knife.
During the search, police stated Ms Peters told officers ‘ it isn’t mine.’
She was taken to Lismore police station where she was charged and refused bail.
On Monday, Mr Ivey told the court he had spoken with Ms Peters and he would be making representations to the prosecution concerning the charges against his client.
Magistrate David Heilpern ordered the representations to be made by Mr Ivey within seven days.
He adjourned Ms Peter’s matters until June 19, for the prosecution to consider their reply to the representations.
