Woman fined for having cattle prod, drugs under the bed

A WOMAN has received hefty fines for keeping a cattle prod under her bed along with syringes containing methamphetamine.

Chantell Anne-Maree Thompson pleaded guilty in her absence to possessing methamphetamine, possessing cannabis, possessing a controlled weapon and possessing drug paraphernalia with methamphetamine on it.

The prosecutor said the items were discovered by police during a search warrant at a Rockingham home on March 27.

They found three syringes with 45ml of methamphetamine in each.

Police said Thompson had made up the solution but had trouble injecting them so had left them.

They found 25 grams of cannabis and in excess of 10 glass smoking implements.

They found the cattle prod under a bed and Thompson told police she had it for protection.

Magistrate Leanne Atkins ordered costs of $266.50 for the search warrant, along with fines totalling $1800 for the items and drugs.
