A Warrnambool man not long released from prison over a high-speed police pursuit was located in a hotel room with drugs, cash and a "tick book".
William Orde, 25, of Norman Street, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court to drug trafficking, dealing with proceeds of crime and failing an oral fluid test.
In September he was jailed for 100 days over a high-speed police chase that ended with him ditching the car and reporting it stolen.
He was released from jail and on February 9 police executed a warrant at a unit he was staying in at the Hopkins House Motel in Warrnambool's Whites Road.
The search revealed .3 grams of methamphetamine, a set of digital scales, 50 small empty desk bags and $1580 believed to be proceeds of crime.
Orde was conveyed to Warrnambool police station where a further searched revealed .35 grams in his pocket.
A black notebook located in the hotel unit by a member of staff was later handed into police.
The court heard the notebook consisted of a "tick list" with references to people purchasing different quantities of ice for varying prices.
Lawyer Marcel White initially told the court his client intended to contest the charges.
He said the drugs were for personal use and the notebook belonged to his former girlfriend, which Police Prosecutor Senior Constable Paul Harris said was denied.
Magistrate Coghlan said the notebook was not the only evidence of drug trafficking and that the charge could be made out from the deal bags, scales and cash alone.
Mr Coghlan said he would sentence Orde to the time he had already served in custody on remand if he pleaded guilty, which he did.
He also pleaded guilty to drug driving.
He was sentenced to 188 days' jail and his driver's licence was cancelled for 12 months.
