Phone records lead to drug supply charges

JUDGE John Robertson told a qualified carpenter standing in the dock he could not understand why he had got into illegal drugs.

Bribie Island man Daniel Jonathon Glasby's phone records were used as evidence when police charged him for supplying methamphetamine, LSD and marijuana.

Officers searched Glasby's former Ipswich home on June 4 last year.

Defence barrister David Crews told Maroochydore District Court on Monday that Glasby had completed an apprenticeship at his uncle's construction business and was now working with a home improvements company.

Mr Crews said his 27-year-old client had been a drug user at the time he was caught but had since stopped.

Judge John Robertson noted Glasby's lack of criminal history, good employment history and positive references.

He said he had trouble understanding why a man of his age and background had become involved in drugs.

Judge Robertson sentenced Glasby to 12 months in jail but gave him immediate parole.

"I think it is probably very unlikely that you will re-offend," Judge Robertson said.
