Man fined for drug possession

    A man found with a quantity of marijuana and psilocybin was fined in provincial court in Drumheller.     Derreck Liepert pleaded guilty in provincial court in Drumheller on Friday, February 18 to two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
    The court heard how Liepert was in a vehicle stopped by a peace officer in Drumheller. The officer saw two bags of marijuana and requested the RCMP to attend. When his vehicle was searched, police discovered 80 grams of marijuana and 50 grams of psilocybin.
    A joint submission by the Federal Crown and defense saw Liepert fined $1,000 for the possession of marijuana and $500 for the possession of psilocybin.
    He was given no time to pay his fine as funds seized during the arrest were returned to Liepert, which he used to pay the penalty.
    A co-accused appeared with Liepert, and his charges were withdrawn.
