A drug trafficking farmer found with meth in a cooler box at his dairy has been jailed for six months.
Alan Roberts, 32, of Warrnambool, pleaded guilty in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court to trafficking ice and possessing the proceeds of crime.
Magistrate Franz Holzer said the 95 days Roberts had spent in custody on remand was not enough of a penalty and sentenced the accused to a further 87 days.
On May 24 police raided a rural property in Warrnambool where the accused was working.
A search of the house revealed about $3000 in cash, digital scales, a taser and a zip lock bag containing remnants of the drug ice. Inside the dairy police found a cooler with a mobile phone, a glass pipe, other drug paraphernalia and .5 grams of ice.
On the mobile phone police found evidence of drug trafficking between May 16 and 23 this year.
Police alleged drugs were sold to a number of people who visited the house in that time period, and that messages revealed a sales pitch for two ounces of ice valued about $8500.
Roberts denied the allegations, stating that he picked up the ice cooler by mistake and that he had placed an old sim card inside the mobile phone.
He told police that he was paid for his farm work in cash or by cheque and that he didn't know it was illegal to own a taser, and had never used it.
In a separate matter, a Terang woman caught with drugs, has had more community work added to a corrections order.
Ebony Jacqueline Jolly, 31 of Terang was placed on a 12-month community corrections order in July after failing to report an accident, theft of a car and other driving offences.
She was ordered to undertake assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and programs, as well as 100 hours of community work.
She returned to Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Monday charged with possessing methamphetamine.
She was placed on a six-month community corrections order with conditions she undertake an additional 10 hours of community work.
On June 15 police attended a Dennington Street property in Warrnambool.
A search of the accused located two zip lock bags with crystal residue believed to be methamphetamine.
Kelly was arrested and interviewed at Warrnambool police station, where she told police she had smoked two points of ice earlier that night.
