Father of 8 jailed for arrangement to 'store drugs'

A "RENEWED" relationship with drugs has seen a Bundy father of eight jailed until October, after he pleaded guilty to more than 20 charges including possession of a shortened firearm.

Danny Paul Neilson was joined by family including a baby girl in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Wednesday, as they prepared to say goodbye.

The court heard that Neilson had been buying drugs off a man but didn't have the money to pay him off.

So an "arrangement" where the man would "store drugs" in a vehicle on the property was struck.

Defence lawyer Craig Ryan said the "drug lab" and firearms that had been found in a search warrant conducted on Neilson's property in June last year was not "for his personal use".

"There were no fingerprints (of Neilson's), it was just a car in his driveway," Mr Ryan said.

Iodine and glassware, morphine and a "couple of grams of speed" were also found at the property.

Magistrate Ross Woodford sentenced Neilson to 20 months' imprisonment, with a parole release date of October 10.
