Cannabis deliveries just ‘helping out an old fellow’
DANIEL Adam Nelson wasn't your average delivery driver.
Instead of pizza or mail, the Rockhampton man was dropping off drugs.
The 28-year-old pleaded guilty in the Rockhampton District Court this week to one count of trafficking and five counts of supplying cannabis in 2012.
The court heard Nelson befriended drug king-pin Stephen Robert Dobbs, 56, when he moved to Rockhampton.
Defence barrister Tom Polley said his client described Dobbs as an "old fellow that we used to help out".
This included collecting cannabis from Dobbs' suppliers and occasionally delivering it to customers.
Mr Polley said Nelson didn't receive any benefit for his assistance.
He said he was a drug user, but not an addict.
The matter was adjourned to today for sentencing.
