200 grams methamphetamine possession - charge dropped

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

Alan Phillips' client was charged in February 2020 with possessing over 200 grams of methamphetamine, 16 kilograms of cannabis, and $61,800.00 in cash in Townsville, Queensland. He is also alleged to have possessed encrypted Ciphr phones.

The police alleged that our client couriered the drugs to Townsville from Brisbane, where upon he sold the drugs for the cash. It was alleged he was part of a sophisticated high level drug trafficking syndicate.

Alan Phillips briefed Scott Lynch of Counsel. Our client was located with a further 2 grams of methamphetamine on his person. He pleaded guilty to that possession but not guilty to the remainder of the charges. The matter was listed for trial in the Supreme Court of Queensland at Townsville.

On the eve of the trial listed to commence in March/April of 2022, the Crown Prosecutor indicated all other charges against our client would be discontinued.

Our client was facing a maximum of 25 years imprisonment. If convicted, it was likely he would have received a lengthy period of actual custody.
