A notorious former bikie, who was found with multiple stab wounds in front of the Perth headquarters of the Mongols, was arrested after $15,000 of methylamphetamine fell out of his buttocks while he was being treated in hospital.
Tristan Roger Allbeury, 33, appeared in the District Court yesterday after pleading guilty to selling or supplying the drug and making dozens of vicious threats to the mother of his son from jail.
The court was told that Allbeury, who was once a senior member of the Finks, was found collapsed on the front lawn of the Mongols clubhouse in Balga in November 2013 with stab wounds - and a loaded 9mm handgun.
He was taken to Royal Perth Hospital where police spotted a small white plastic-wrapped package on the bed beside him.
It contained more than 20g of methylamphetamine, with a street value of between $10,000 and $15,000.
Allbeury admitted in court that he concealed the drugs between his buttocks in a bid to hide the package from police.
Prosecutors claimed Allbeury had the drugs to sell them. But he told the court they were mostly for personal consumption, although he would give some to friends free.
"Who is going to want to buy drugs that have been hidden there," he said.
Allbeury, who was in jail for refusing to answer questions from the West Australian corruption watchdog about a vicious gang brawl at the Kwinana Motorplex, began a jailhouse campaign of verbal and written abuse against the mother of his young child in 2012.
In numerous phone calls, which were recorded, Allbeury repeatedly threatened the woman.
He claimed the calls were made out of concern for his son's welfare but Judge Simon Stone rejected this, saying any parental anxiety was "subsumed by jealousy and threats". "He threatens to do horrible things to the mother of the child . . . there is intimidation, threats, frustration and anger," Judge Stone noted.
Allbeury will be sentenced today.
