Man guilty of online MDMA buy
A Margaret River man has been convicted of drug dealing after ordering MDMA online and sending it to his mother’s address.
On December 28, 2017, WA police attended the Australia Post depot at the Perth Airport and intercepted a parcel containing 28g of MDMA concealed in a DVD wallet.
Police delivered it to an address in Margaret River on January 2, 2018, while disguised as Australia Post employees.
Felix Wolfl accepted the package, which was addressed to himself, but 20 minutes later, police raided the house finding the wallet containing the MDMA by his bedside.
The 28-year-old denied any knowledge of the contents of the wallet saying he had received the package through a secret Santa scheme from online forum Reddit.
After analysing his phone, police found several sent messages on Snapchat, one of which had not yet been opened.
Police viewed the Snapchat and observed a photo of the clip seal bag containing the MDMA with the caption “too bad this wasn’t around for New Year’s.”
Wolfl then confessed to intending to “take a little bit myself and sharing the rest with my friends”, leading to a sell and supply charge.
The MDMA had a purity of 74 per cent and a street value of $5600.
District Court Judge Laurence Levy said the concerning aspect of his evidence was his “glowing” description of the drug.
“The amount of deaths that happen due to MDMA is accumulative every year and I’m not sure your attitude towards it has changed.”
Judge Levy granted a $60,000 bail. Wolfl will be sentenced in Bunbury District Court on July 30.
