Two people were convicted for drug and driving related offences in Orange Local Court on Monday.
Jayden Anthony Sayer Phillips, who also goes by Phillips-Taylor, 23, of Forbes Street, Trundle was sentenced for offences committed in Orange and Lucknow in November last year.
Phillips was driving on the Mitchell Highway when he was directed into a roadside breath test side at Lucknow at 8.35pm on November 8.
Although he gave a negative alcohol reading the police had a drug detection dog with them that indicated there were drugs present in his car.
When questioned, Phillips reached into a rip in his trousers and removed a plastic bag containing cannabis. It weighed a total of 13.6 grams.
He was fined $220 for the drug possession.
Phillips was also convicted for driving with a mid-range drink-driving reading of 0.123 on Peisley Street on November 22.
According to police, officers saw him driving north on Forest Road on the railway overpass bridge towards Peisley Street at 3.40pm.
Police said he was driving erratically, slowing down and speeding up again, so they stopped him for a random breath test.
A police officer who approached his car saw beer bottles on the front passenger seat and when asked if he'd been drinking Phillips said, "I won't lie, I've had about three".
Magistrate David Day gave him a six-month community correction order, a three-month driving disqualification and 12-month interlock order.
In another matter Fletcher Press, 45, of Banksia Street, was convicted and disqualified from driving for six months for driving with methamphetamine in his system.
He was stopped at 12.02pm on December 4, 2019, and told police, "I injected ice this morning".
