Facebook chat reveals DJ's drug plans
A 23-year-old Northern Territory disc jockey who discussed buying large quantities of an illegal drug with several people on Facebook will spend 28 days in jail after pleading guilty to possession.
In 2009, police raided the house of Dylan Karta Punster and found 135 grams of methadrone, which had been sent to him from China.
They later seized a package addressed to Punster that contained a capsule-filling device and thousands of empty capsules.
Police also found Facebook messages talking about the quality of the drug, and how to buy more of it if the importation was successful.
"Is it good?" one of his Facebook friends asks.
"Yeah, it is," Punster replies.
"Got to reload every half hour or so.
"Bit like Charlie.
"Good shit but cheap as, too."
Punster initially told police the drugs and the 3000 empty capsules were for his own use.
Justice Judith Kelly did not accept that and sentenced Punster to 18 months' jail with a non-parole period of 28 days.
