A city man sentenced to limited house arrest for drug and property offences has been ordered not to have parties while under the court order.

Phillip Warren, 31, pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and possession of stolen property charges laid March 28 in Owen Sound.

Police searched his home and found 130 grams of pot worth an estimated $1,300, a vial of marijuana resin, digital scale and more than $600, federal Crown attorney Elizabeth Barefoot told court.

Warren received a 90-day conditional sentence, jointly recommended by the Crown and defence, with a curfew of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., during which he is not to have any parties.

Judge Julia Morneau added that term because, she said, she understands people under house arrest have been abiding by terms included in her orders but were still were having parties.

Morneau also ordered Warren not to use unprescribed drugs, alcohol or other intoxicants, possess no weapons, undertake any recommended counselling and forfeit all items police seized.

He was ordered to pay $400 in victim surcharges, at $200 per indictable offence, and can't posess long guns for 10 years, or handguns or other prohibited or restricted weapons for life.
