A carer of six children will be locked up for one year after cops found thousands of dollars worth of ice hidden in baby goods at his Queensland property.

Police charged 30-year-old Zachary Richard Laszuk with a series of drug and weapon charges after searching his home in Lowood, on May 11, 2018.

The search uncovered 44g of methamphetamine hidden in a disposable baby nappy, 27g in a tin of baby formula, as well as a quantity of marijuana, $5,000 in cash and two tasers according to the Sunshine Coast Daily.

Laszuk attended the Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday, December 2, where he entered a guilty plea to all charges which included drug supply and possession of weapons.

He has been sentenced to five years in jail, but to be released on parole in November next year.

In handing down the sentence, Judge Bowskill expressed leniency since Laszuk had no previous history of drug offending. 

Justice Bowskill told the court she was still shocked by his willingness to bring drugs into the home where he was caring for six children, as reported in the Sunshine Coast Daily.   

‘This terrifies me,’ she said.

‘People who are in charge of small children who have truck loads of Methylamphetamine in their house and are engaging in this activity.’

It’s understood Laszuk was the carer for six children at the time of the arrest, including two of his younger siblings- who were placed in his custody as a result of his mother’s death three years ago.
