Pot smoking bodybuilder wants to be on a 'prison farm'

PRISON inmate Dylan Todd, 25, wants some of his outstanding traffic offences finalised by a Gladstone court so he can be moved to a prison farm.

Already serving jail time on drug, steroid and trafficking offences, Todd pleaded guilty before the Gladstone Magistrates Court via video link to a series of traffic offences at Calliope in June.

Police prosecutor Gavin Reece said the charges arose after a single vehicle crash involving Todd at 7.40am on June 9 when his car failed to take a bend.

Mr Reece said police went to the scene after drivers reported following the car on the Bruce Highway from Mount Larcom, saying it was speeding and swerving all over the road.

A woman told police she was driving but Todd said he was driving at the time of the crash.

Mr Reece said both the woman and Todd only held learner licences.

Mr Reece said Todd's car failed to take the bend, travelled across two road lanes, mounted a traffic island and ended in vegetation.

"He says he can't remember and must have had a micro sleep as he had a big night," Mr Reece said.

"He says he smoked cannabis two nights before."

However, amphetamine, methylamphetamine and other drugs were found in a blood test.

Todd told magistrate Melanie Ho he wanted the matter finalised so he could be moved to a prison farm.

He pleaded guilty to failing to drive with due care and attention, driving under the influence, failing to comply with learner driver provisions, and contravening a requirement of police.

His lawyer sought to minimise the licence suspension on his previous disqualifications.

However, Ms Ho said Todd has "an appalling traffic history" and previously been sentenced to jail terms for his offending including failing to stop.

His matter was adjourned and will be finalised on November 11.

Dredging begins in Gladstone's port

Dredging the 2.3km Narrows crossing of the QCLNG and APLNG gas pipelines. The dredging involves a small backhoe dredge mounted on a barge, two tug boats, a survey vessel. After the pipelines are laid in the same trench, they will be covered with rock for protection from shipping and will still allow sufficient depth for boat traffic through The Narrows.

BUOYS removed to make room for dredging operations.
