A New Zealand national has been jailed for six months after she was caught drug trafficking while on bail for similar offending.
Peta Nicholson, 30, of Lyndoch Avenue, pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court to committing indictable offences on bail, dealing with proceeds of crime and drug and weapon offences.
Lawyer Caroline Salter said at the time of the offending, Nicholson had relapsed into drug use, was essentially homeless and her "life had started to crumble".
But, she said her client had completed about 20 educational courses during the 107 days spent in custody on remand.
She said being in custody had reminded Nicholson how she could excel when living a "positive, well-structured life".
Nicholson was jailed for six months, with 107 days counted as time served.
She was also fined $700.
On October 12 last year, Nicholson was arrested at a property in Warrnambool's Kelp Street after a search warrant revealed quantities of drugs, ammunition and other items believed to be proceeds of crime.
She was charged and released on bail.
Then on May 29 police executed a search warrant at a hotel in Warrnambool's King Street which was booked in Nicholson's name.
A search of the apartment located nine grams of cannabis, 1.29 grams of ice, a double edged knife and two mobile phones with evidence of drug trafficking.
Nicholson told police the knife and methamphetamine belonged to her, but denied ownership of the cannabis.
In a previous court hearing, police said Nicholson was a New Zealand citizen with no income and no government benefits.
