A meth trafficker, whose $1000 payday turned into a three-year-prison stint, was sprung by police for travelling at 190km/h through Kojonup. Dejan Djekic was sentenced to 40 months in prison by the District Court of WA in April after he was caught by police concealing more than 55 grams of meth in a secret compartment installed in his Volkswagen hatchback. “Your decision on 8 September to drive at such extraordinary speed thus bringing yourself to the attention of police becomes more explicable when I consider your very poor driving record,” Judge Alan Troy said at the time of Djekic’s sentencing. The 34-year-old fronted Albany Magistrate’s Court last Thursday to face charges of reckless driving and possessing illegally imported prescription medicine. The prescription drugs were also found after he was pulled over by police in Kojonup. Police prosecutor Sergeant Dave Loverock told the court that just before midday on September 8, 2018, police clocked Djekic driving at the “extraordinary” speed heading south on Albany Highway in a 110km/h zone in Kojonup. Djekic’s bag of illegally imported prescription drugs could easily be seen by officers in the footwell of the Volkswagen’s passenger seat. After he was taken to Albany, Djekic admitted to police in a recorded interview that he had bought the prescription drugs from overseas and was selling them, Sgt Loverock said. Magistrate Raelene Johnston fined Djekic $1000 for reckless driving and disqualified his licence for six months. The convicted meth trafficker received a two-month prison term for possessing the unlawfully obtained prescription drugs. However Ms Johnston ordered that sentence to be served concurrently with the term handed down in the District Court. In his District Court sentencing hearing, Judge Troy told Djekic he “must have been aware” of the role he was playing in Albany’s drug trade. “Your actions were motivated by financial gain, that is the payment of $1000 and to that extent your participation was simply for your own commercial gain,” he said. At the time, State prosecutor Shaban Azad told the court that someone referred to as “JC” had supplied the drug toDjekic, who was on his way to deliver it to “Levi” in Albany.
