Offending occurred during a three month period between 2 May 2015 and 11 August 2015.
During that period the police conducted an electronic surveillance operation directed initially at another person, Mr Jiang. This quickly led the police to Vernon, because they discovered that Vernon was one of Mr Jiang’s main distributors. Vernon would purchase quantities of methamphetamine from Mr Jiang in ounce or gram lots. He would then distribute it in smaller quantities to customers. Vernon did so using various drivers who carried out deliveries of the drugs. In total, he dealt with 1.35 kilograms of methamphetamine in this way.
Vernon was on bail for other Methamphetamine related charges at the time of offending.
He has several prior convictions related to methamphetamine.
