Online drug business lasts just nine days

SYNTHETIC cannabis was the commodity when Jeffrey Wade Clancy set up his online business, but wary post office workers dobbed him in.

Yesterday Clancy, 29, pleaded guilty in Gladstone District Court to trafficking a dangerous drug.

Judge Brendan Butler sentenced him to 12 months jail, suspended immediately, but operative for two years.

"He is quite the businessman, isn't he?" Judge Butler remarked.

"Essentially what he was doing was buying these products from eBay, mixing them up and reselling them on eBay."

In his operation of about nine days, Clancy had sold about $2000 worth to 15-20 people.

Police had searched Clancy's Boyne Island home on February 8, 2013.
