Man pleads guilty to ice-in-undies smuggle

AAP logoAAP 2/08/2016

A man has pleaded guilty to trafficking the illegal drug ice in his underwear during a flight to Hobart.

Joseph Roy Wallner, 22, from Malbina on the northern outskirts of Hobart admitted to the charge in the Hobart Magistrates Court on Wednesday.

A sniffer dog raised the alarm as Wallner arrived on a Virgin flight from Sydney on July 1 and officers subsequently found an estimated $280,000 worth of crystal methylamphetamine in his underwear.

Wallner is yet to enter pleas to two charges of using false identification to obtain an aircraft ticket in a name other than his own.

The matters have been adjourned to the Supreme Court on August 29.
