Chinderah woman on drug charges

WHEN Natalie Overall was stopped by police at Tweed Heads for an RBT she told them her name was Muttet which police said sounded like ‘Mutten', despite correcting herself a few times.

She told an officer a crystal substance found in her car was cake icing.

Overall, 28, of Chinderah, pleaded guilty in Lismore Local Court on Tuesday to possession of amphetamine; and driving under the influence of a drug (amphetamine) at Tweed Heads at 10 pm on November 3 last year.

She also pleaded guilty to being a driver who stated a false name, and driving when her licence was suspended.

Police stopped her on Blundell Boulevard and found a plastic container with a tablet inside and two other packets of a crystal substance.

“It's an eccy tablet,” Overall reportedly told the officer. “And the other stuff is speed. I had some earlier. I ate it.”

A lolly container was also found with three plastic satchel bags inside. One held two small tablets of LSD, one bag held a brown substance police stated was amphetamine, and a pink substance was icing sugar.

Police stated a crystal substance found was a cutting agent which Overall told them was ‘icing'.

Blood and urine samples were taken at Tweed Heads Hospital.

An analysis established she had amphetamine present in her system.

Defence lawyer Dannielle Stubbs said her client had no previous police record for these types of matters. The Crown prosecutor responded it was a case where treatment and counselling for drug issues would be appropriate.

Magistrate Robyn Denes ordered a presentence report and adjourned sentence to August 3.
