Man caught packing backside booty

A DRUG offender packed two goodie bags for his prison trip containing 39 tablets, a needle and syringe, and cannabis and hid them in his bottom.

Michael Jackson, the drug offender not the late pop star, appeared in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty to three counts of possessing dangerous drugs and possessing a syringe.

Prosecutor Sergeant Tony Costa said Jackson was arrested at Chinchilla on a return to prison warrant at the weekend.

He was searched and placed in a clean cell at the Toowoomba Police watchhouse on Sunday morning.

Staff entered his cell at 7.10am and discovered two tightly wrapped packages in Jackson's bedding.

Sgt Costa said Jackson, 28, told police the packages had been smuggled into his cell "up my ****".

Defence solicitor Dan Habermann said Jackson had been on the run for three weeks after breaching his parole and knew he was going back to prison.

Mr Habermann said Jackson had "packed away some of his belongings", including 31 morphine tablets and eight valium tablets, in preparation for prison.

He was jailed and will be released on parole on November 2.
