Many tenants and landlords choose to maintain a degree of respectful distance. Not Michael Bloxsom, who agreed to help out his landlord – who just happened to be a street level drug dealer.

The 36 year old Bloxsom, from Rockhampton, was arrested when his landlord, Stephen Dobbs, was targeted by the police for drug trafficking.

The Mornington Bulletin reports that Dobbs was sentenced to four years and 10 months jail on drug trafficking charges on December 18 last year, to be suspended after eight months.

Bloxsom pleaded guilty to one count of trafficking cannabis in the Rockhampton District Court. The court heard that Bloxsom was involved in about 18 supplies of values between $360 and $1,800 as part of Dobbs’s seven month long business. According to Crown prosecutor Susan Hedge, Bloxsom’s transactions accounted for less than 1.6% of total turnover.

Bloxsom didn’t get paid for his work, but did receive some cannabis in exchange for his assistance.
