The younger sister of alleged Wellington drug syndicate leader, Kyle Anthony Thompson has admitted to her involvement in the supply of 'ice'.
Sharria Termecia Thompson, 24, was one of dozens arrested as part of Strike Force Pinnacle - a 14-month undercover police operation targeting a drug supply syndicate operating out of Wellington.
Despite initially being charged with 24 offences, 20 were withdrawn and in Dubbo Local Court on August 26, Thompson pleaded guilty to supplying 79.85 grams of ice, participating in a criminal group, dealing with proceeds of crime and organising a drug premises.
According to a statement of agreed facts, the mother of three was involved in the syndicate between December 2019 and May 2020.
Thompson was involved in performing a number of roles to assist other members of the syndicate conduct their operation, including taking phone calls from an upline supplier of drugs in Sydney and letting the person into a home shared by other members of the syndicate.
Secret police tapped phone calls monitored Thompson selling ice to her brother Bradley Thompsonand many other clients.
In January 2020 she was monitored arranging to sell ice to man for $50, and instructed another member of the syndicate, Robert Redding about the location of drugs in her bedroom.
On one occasion in March, Thompson had asked another alleged figure in the syndicate, to supply "one big one" to an unknown person in exchange for "4" - which meant an ounce or 28 grams of ice in exchange for $4000.
She was again monitored texting another woman who asked for a "half one", when Thompson sent back a thumbs up emoji. Thompson later supplied 14 grams of ice in exchange for $2250.
For one particular user and purchaser who did not have a working car, Thompson occasionally arranged drug couriers and occasionally allowed the use of her motor vehicle to deliver drugs to that purchaser in Dubbo from Wellington.
On a few occasions she also alerted the others to the activities of law enforcement.
During the police operation Thompson was unemployed and receiving government benefits. However between June 2019 and March 2020, court documents said she regularly gambled at two licenced premises in Wellington.
Court documents said the amounts of money put through the poker machines was "inconsistent with the legitimate income earnt from welfare payments".
When police raided the Thornton Street home used to sell drugs out of, they also found numerous mobile phones, vacuum sealed bags and $5100 in cash.
She was arrested in May 2020 with other alleged members of the syndicate.
Thompson was granted bail and released from custody in November last year to be by her mother's hospital bed, after an incident that also killed her father on November 8.
A Sentencing Assessment Report is being prepared, and she is expected to be sentenced in the Local Court in November.
