Man sent to jail over drug charge

A MAN who breached his armed robbery parole by being found with cannabis has been fined $600 in the Warwick Magistrates Court this week.

Russell Andrew White appeared by video link from prison and pleaded guilty to possession of a dangerous drug, which was found by police during a search of a Leyburn residence on New Year's Eve.

White was immediately returned to jail, after having been released in June last year after serving seven years for an armed robbery he carried out in Toowoomba.

He claimed to have full-time work at Leyburn and care of his expectant wife and their existing child.
