Woman placed on 12-month bond for drug and weapon offences

A 46-year-old Nowra woman who pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited drug, possessing a restricted substance and possessing a prohibited weapon has been placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond.

Germaine Sheridan Terrie Wensley was arrested by police in Nowra on December 31 last year, with court papers saying officers were patrolling a known drug supply area when they observed a vehicle travelling north on Journal Street.

Police had allegedly stopped the vehicle the day before and had discovered prohibited drugs, weapons and cash. The owner of the vehicle had been told not to enter Nowra.

Police stopped the vehicle on Station Street with Wensley telling police it was a “mate’s car”.

A search of the car by officers found a small mints container which had green vegetable matter inside.

Wensley told police, “Yes, it's just a little bit, not even a tenner”.

Police officers also found two Seroquel XR, tablets, an antipsychotic, which Wensley claims were given to her by a friend. She told police she took them so the friend couldn't take them.

Police also discovered a small metal lighter, which had a spring-loaded six centimetre blade, which the accused told police she was unaware was a prohibited weapon.

In Nowra Local Court Magistrate Gabriel Fleming placed Wensley on a 12-month good behaviour bond.
