Byron Bay is a popular holiday destination, known for it's beautiful beaches, surfing and scuba diving sites. It's also a notorious party town.
Police in Byron Bay were so worried about Flynn Brown's drug activities, they set up a sting to trap him. And it worked. After months of hard work, he finally slipped up when he sold "8 ball" cocaine to an undercover cop.
He fronted Byron Bay local court yesterday charged with 13 counts of supplying prohibited drugs including ice, cocaine, MDMA, cannabis and heroin-laced pills.
Police allege he sold drugs to fellow students at Byron Bay High School, locals, tourists, and music festival patrons.
Police intercepted 7700 phone calls and text messages in a three months period and discovered large amounts of cash and drugs hidden around the town in safe hiding places.
Magistrate Michael Dakin granted Brown bail, imposing strict conditions with a $200,000 surety and when Brown's father asked if the amount could be reduced to $150,000, Mr Dakin refused.
