A Warrnambool man caught throwing drugs over a fence after sighting police has been jailed for 38 days.
Rodney Sumner, 41, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court to breaching a community corrections order, refusing to accompany police for an oral fluid test and drug-related offences.
The court heard Sumner was placed on an 18 month community corrections order after pleading guilty to failing to answer bail and possessing ice in May last year.
Then on November 30 police observed a vehicle pull out of the driveway of a Raglan Parade property before sighting police and quickly pulling back in.
Sumner was then seen standing by the vehicle with two known drug users.
Police said he was observed throwing something over a rear fence.
Officers then entered a yard and retrieved an orange container filled with 0.3 grams of ice and 1.35 grams of cannabis.
Sumner was arrested and taken to Warrnambool police station where he was interviewed.
During an interview, Sumner said he threw a Kinder Surprise container filled drugs over the fence after sighting police.
Police said failed to provide enough saliva for an oral fluid test and then refused to accompany police to hospital for a blood test.
He denied driving the vehicle and failed to nominate the driver.
He said he didn’t accompany police to hospital because he was scared of needles.
Sumner was jailed for 38 days with 24 days already served in custody on remand.
