An alleged member of a crime syndicate charged with supplying cannabis has pleaded guilty in Dubbo Local Court.
Colin Peacock, 45, was arrested at a home on Clive Street, Wellington on November 17 last year.
Co-accused Carla Westbury, 30, and Darren Leggett, 37, were arrested on the same day when police found cannabis in their vehicle.
Police alleged Leggett acted as the head of a syndicate supplying cannabis in Wellington and surrounding towns for between four and five years.
Westbury was alleged to have played an active role in the drug enterprise.
Peacock was alleged to have transported drugs from Sydney to Wellington and Dubbo.
Police alleged cannabis was sourced from Sydney, with orders for 454.4 grams at a time placed via mobile phone.
Peacock conducted plea negotiations with the Department of Public Prosecutions over several months.
A charge of supplying a commercial quantity of cannabis was withdrawn by the prosecution when Peacock appeared before Magistrate Andrew Eckhold on Wednesday.
Peacock pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of supplying cannabis. A brief of evidence was tendered to the court and Peacock was committed to be arraigned in Dubbo District Court on August 17.
Bail was continued. Magistrate Eckhold ordered a pre-sentence report.
Charges of supplying a commercial quantity of cannabis were withdrawn and dismissed when Leggett and Westbury made a joint appearance before the court. The couple now face charges of taking part in the supply of a prohibited drug.
Magistrate Eckhold was told plea negotiations with the Department of Public Prosecutions were close to concluding.
Charges against Westbury were adjourned to July 11. Leggett will reappear in court on July 25.
Bail was continued in both cases.
