A MAN found passed out in Mandurah Forum at 9.30am was fined $800 for heroin possession.

Blake Michael Dodds pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited drug and possessing drug paraphernalia when he appeared in Mandurah Magistrates Court on Friday.

Police prosecutor Mick Fallows said security called police when they found Dodds passed out on October 2.

Police found 0.29g of heroin on Dodds and a syringe with a cloudy substance in it.

Dodds told the court his partner had broken up with him and he was numbing the pain. Dodds said he had a problem with heroin but had not used for three weeks. He said this incident was a wake-up call and he wanted to be the father his daughter deserved.
