Man stored meth pipe in sock hidden in pant pocket

A MAN produced a sock from his pant pocket which contained a pipe used to smoke meth.

About 8.25pm on April 26, a blue Ford sedan was intercepted by police on Utah Drive, Moranbah, as part of a random breath test campaign, Police Prosecutor Sergeant Paul Cramp told Moranbah Magistrates Court today.

The driver, Kody Mark Brooker, 23, returned a positive drug test which later identified the presence of methylamphetamine in his saliva, Sgt Cramp said.

Police saw clip seal bags scattered on the back seat of the vehicle which led them to conduct a further search, the court heard.
