The court heard the men - led by kingpin Jason Robert Ryan and including Benjamin Francis Carey, Darron Jayde Smith, Juan Kevin Lloyd Bright and Corie Weldon - built up a drug enterprise over six months during late-2010 and early-2011.

They all pleaded guilty in the court today to charges of drug trafficking.

Justice McMeekin adjourned his sentencing to 11am tomorrow.
