21-year-old drug dealer kept a list of ways to avoid cops

WHEN Justyn Bunyoung wrote his list of drug dealer do's and dont's, not getting caught by police should have been at the top.

Bunyoung kept three lists at his Emerald address where he was caught by police with more than $3000 in cash stashed under his mattress and drugs hidden in his toilet.

One list titled 'home life' detailed Bunyoung's personal goals, including 'take out the rubbish, save money and get off it'.

Another contained drug dealer strategies on how to avoid police detection.

When police raided his home last June they found a zip lock bag containing 0.109g of white crystals floating in the toilet bowl in the bathroom.

They also found cash, three bags of MDMA capsules, a glass pipe, a digital set of scales and a third list titled collect and debt.

Bunyoung, 21, pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court in Rockhampton yesterday to one charge of trafficking, one count of supplying and two of possessing dangerous drugs between June 9 and June 21, 2014.

The court heard on June 12, 2014, Emerald police intercepted and searched a vehicle that had left Bunyoung's residence.

During the search police found the female driver's mobile phone containing text messages from Bunyoung relating to drug supply.

Crown prosecutor Alexandria Baker told the court Bunyoung came to the attention of police after the female driver sent text messages to him asking for 'white' and received a reply saying he had some for '$500 a gram'.

Prosecutor Baker described the list titled business life as a 'tricks of the trade' list.

"The list detailed rules to follow in terms of dealing and possession that would lessen the chance of police detection," Prosecutor Baker said.

"The other list that was found titled collect and debt had more than 25 names on it with debts owed from $50 and $3000."

The court was told Bunyoung had prior history of drug possession and was released from prison last Friday for a possession charge in September last year for which he had served three months.

Judge David Boddice said Bunyoung's offences were serious for a person his age.

"You're a young person who became involved in the drug scene and became associated with other people in the industry," Judge Boddice said.

"You had persistent involvement in the trade and even kept methods of how to avoid police detection.

Judge Boddice said with a drug history dating back to 2012 it suggested Bunyoung had been in the industry for years.

"But whether or not you have an addiction, it's not a satisfactory explanation that you then become involved in dealing. If you commit an offence where imprisonment is an option you will come back here and you will serve your time."

Bunyoung was sentenced to two years and six months jail, wholly suspended.
