Music festival drug dealer cops parole

AN Ipswich ecstasy dealer who targeted music festival patrons and nightclubbers will spend two years on probation.

Suzette Kim Parreno, 22, pleaded guilty in Brisbane District Court on Thursday to three charges of supplying a dangerous drug and one of possessing a dangerous drug.

Parreno was caught with 61 capsules of ecstasy during a random traffic stop in February last year.

Parreno told officers she paid $15 each for the capsules and planned to sell them for $25 each.

Parreno also explained that she sold 10 just an hour before the drug bust to one person and that she offloaded 20 ecstasy pills during a music festival at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane in January of 2016.

She also admitted to selling five tablets at a Fortitude Valley nightclub for a friend but she claimed she received no payment for that transaction.

Judge Nicole Kefford took into account Parreno's early guilty pleas and the lack of drug convictions on her criminal history.

Judge Kefford acknowledged the young woman had a history of mental health problems and that the defendant was a regular ecstasy and cocaine user.

"These are very serious offences and this is a dangerous drug," Judge Kefford said.

"It is an addictive and destructive drug."
