A Karratha man has been jailed for supplying and selling drugs, including cannabis and methylamphetamine. Todd Bickley, 28, was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to a string of charges including seven charges of offering to sell or supply a prohibited drug to another, and seven charges of supplying a prohibited drug. The court heard Bickley made several offers to sell prohibited drugs, including cannabis, methylamphetamine, and LSD, between June 28 and November 30 last year. During the same period, Bickley supplied drugs several times, including providing 14 grams of cannabis three times and 0.5 grams of meth. Police had Bickley under investigation between June 11 and December 1, during which they intercepted several phone calls with offers to supply drugs, before arresting Bickley on December 2. Bickley also pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous driving and driving while having a suspended license. Defence lawyer John Hawkins said Bickley moved to Karratha in 2018 at his families urging to try and get a fresh start after being handed a given a community based order for using and supplying in August that year. Mr Hawkins said the family thought moving up North would help, but once again Bickley seemed to relapse. Mr Hawkins said Bickley told police that he was not making any money off the selling of the drugs, but got a discount on the drugs he was using at the time. Magistrate Michelle Ridley said the nature of both the driving charges and supplying drugs attracted a period of immediate imprisonment. “You were dealing with misery, and dealing drugs to the community,” she said. “You do not have youth on your side, and this is not your first time before the court.” Magistrate Ridley said the early entry of guilty pleas warranted a discount in sentencing. Bickley will be eligible for parole after 71/2 months in jail. His licence was suspended for five years and he was fined $3200 plus court costs.
