Drug dealer jailed for six years

A drug dealer who was caught with more than $100,000 worth of cannabis and cocaine at his home has been jailed for six years.

Police descended on Daymon Simmons' Beacon Hill property in Sandys on August 27, 2014 and recovered the haul of drugs as well as $12,900 in cash.

During a search of the house, officers seized 385g of cocaine and smaller quantities of cannabis and cannabis resin.

At a Supreme Court sentencing today, Simmons, who has a young daughter, told the court: “I'm sorry for letting my family and my daughter down.

“I will try and make the best of this bad situation and I never plan to be in front of this court ever again.”

Simmons lawyer, Marc Daniels, described the offences as “an act of desperation to provide for his family”.

Simmons, 41, admitted three counts of possessing drugs with intent to supply, possessing drugs equipment and allowing his home to be used for the misuse of drugs.
