Queensland mother jailed for using her young son as a drug mule.
Toni Ness, from Ipswich, sold speed in front of children and arranged for her 12-year-old to do a deal, 7 News reports.
The 42-year-old was reportedly a substantial drug dealer but police were shocked with just how she served them.
She called the scene of the crime ‘the shop’. There were ‘shop keepers’ and children.
“The main target of this operation has been using a 12 year old child to deliver the drugs she has been selling,” Detective Inspector Gary Dixon to 7 News.
The boy escorted customers to a safe house where he then handed over the drugs and collected money.
Ness was given up for adoption as a 12-year-old after giving birth to twins at the age of 11.
She didn’t see her children until they were 16 and one of her children took his own life two years later.
The judge took into account her life and she was sentenced to five years behind bars.
