A HORSHAM man has been sentenced to 70 days in jail for drug trafficking.
Benjamin Price, 25, appeared in Horsham Magistrates' Court earlier this month.
He was charged with trafficking a drug of dependence, possessing a drug of dependence, using a drug of dependence, possessing a prohibited weapon, assisting in the retention of stolen goods, and breaching an intervention order.
He pleaded guilty to the charges.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Michelle Wentworth told the court that police searched Price's house on February 12 at 9am.
Police found one gram of methylamphetamine and a set of steel knuckle-dusters. Officers found a mountain bike and a BMX bike, which had been reported stolen.
Police also found seven orange safety cones and a pedestrian sign, which was property of Horsham Rural City Council.
Price told police that he didn't know the knuckle dusters were a prohibited weapon.
He also said he smoked cannabis and methylamphetamine every day and often gave cannabis to friends through the front window of his house. He admitted to police that he had given cannabis to a 17-year-old boy.
Price also had a personal safety order against him for 12 months.
The court heard that Price was within two metres of the victim on March 29, which was a breach of the order.
Magistrate Franz Holzer sentenced Price to 70 days in jail, with 49 days already served.
At the end of his sentence, Price will do an 12-month community corrections order, which will include supervision, treatment and rehabilitation programs.
