A bar owner has been incarcerated for at least eight years after selling nearly $ 70,000 in drugs to an undercover police officer.
Chris Lytros, 50, sold ice and cocaine to an uncovered officer on eight separate occasions between November 2015 and April 2016.
Mr. Lytros was trapped at the Railway Hotel in Brunswick, Melbourne, where he was a licensee.
Chris Lytros, 50, sold nearly $ 70,000 in ice and cocaine to an officer discovered on eight separate occasions at the Brunswick Railway Hotel (pictured), Melbourne, where he held the license.
The purchases cost the undercover cop more than $ 67,800.
Mr. Lytros appeared Thursday in county court where he pleaded guilty to one count of trafficking in a commercial amount of ice and one of each of cocaine and MDMA traffic.
The police found the MDMA during the investigations when they searched a property.
"His offense is extremely serious and has a serious impact on the community," Judge Geoffrey Chettle told Mr. Lytros.
Judge Chettle said he had not learned the lesson of his previous conviction and had imprisoned Mr. Lytros for twelve years.
Lytros has spent more than two years in custody and will not be eligible for parole until he reaches a minimum of eight years.
