A ROCKHAMPTON man pleaded guilty to possession of methylamphetamine and a relevant substance at Biloela Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

The man was pulled over while driving a Ford Laser sedan in Moura on August 31, where police discovered two small amounts of methylamphetamine in a bag under the driver's seat.

He was then transferred to Biloela police station, where officers searching his person found a small container of hypophosphorous acid in his pocket.

Hypophosphorous acid is a reducing agent that is one of the three principal ingredients used to produce methylamphetamine.

Taking into account the fact that the defendant had no previous criminal history, magistrate Mark Morrow fined him $800 for the offences and ordered that no conviction be recorded.
