In a case of mistaken identity, a Casino man has found himself well and truly busted after giving police what they weren’t even looking for.
Police will allege that in the early hours of last Saturday morning a 25 year old Casino man attended a house in a seriously intoxicated state.
The occupants of the house did not know who he was and called police.
Police arranged for the man to be driven back home, and asked him to produce some identification. Rather than produce a licence or medicare card, the Casino man helpfully handed police 28 grams of cannabis.
The fellow was taken home to his mother. He was also given a Field Court Attendance Notice for ‘Possess Prohibited Drug’ and will appear in Casino Local Court in May.
