Guilty plea for drug offender

COFFEE filters, gloves, glass bottles, a pressure cooker, an empty packet of cold and flu tablets and a syringe.

These were the items police found in Frederick Lazari's garage.

Lazari pleaded guilty yesterday in Brisbane Supreme Court to possessing drug utensils, as well as supplying and possessing methamphetamine and possessing instructions to make methamphetamine.

The court heard police searched Lazari's Redbank Plains home on June 4, 2010.

The court heard Lazari became caught up in a covert police operation surrounding Ipswich man Nathan Gimm, who has previously been jailed for trafficking.

Lazari, an Algerian-born 61-year-old, was sentenced to 12 months jail but the term was wholly suspended for two years.
