Dzendolet will be eligible for parole on September 3, 2014.REBELS Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Mount Isa branch president John Dzendolet, 46, was sentenced to six years prison in Mount Isa Supreme Court Yesterday.
Dzendolet pleaded guilty to supply of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs.
The sentencing comes after a joint operation between Northern Regional Drug Squad, the Mount Isa Criminal Investigation Branch and Taskforce Hydra.
Taskforce Hydra was established in 2006 to monitor criminal activity of outlaw motorcycle gangs in Queensland.
Mount Isa Police Inspector Trevor Kidd said it was a “lengthy and complex investigation”.
“Queensland Police Service continue to investigatethe criminal elements of outlaw motorcycle gangs,” he said.
“This should put people on notice involved in drugs that they will be investigated.
“Drugs are a serious concern to the community and have a seriously negative impact on families and the community. Anyone with information in relation to drugs should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”
As part of the investigations, Deborah Murray was also sentenced to three years prison with parole eligibility in nine months.
Murrayand Dzendolet pleaded guilty to supply of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs.
Dzendolet was initially charged with one count of trafficking of dangerous drugs and supplying dangerous drugs in 2008.
Murray was initially charged with trafficking of dangerous drugs, but yesterday, they both pleaded guilty to supply of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs.
All other charges for drug trafficking were struck out as nolle prosequi, a Latin term meaning unwilling to pursue or do not prosecute.
Members of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang and supporters attended the sentencing to show support for their president.
Dzendolet was charged on November 21, 2008 after 1256 grams of methyl amphetamines were found in a car his partner was driving from Toowoomba to Mount Isa. The drug was later identified as speed and had a value of more than $250,000.
In Mount Isa Magistrates Court on September 16 and 17, 2008, the prosecution said police had searched the car for the drugs as a result of information they’d discovered from a listening device in Dzendolet’s home.
The prosecution claimed the recording indicated Dzendolet had paid his partner to collect an item from Toowoomba and return it to Mount Isa.
Dzendolet will be eligible for parole on September 3, 2014.
