A SUNSHINE COAST man who was labelled a "prolific and professional" drug maker in court documents has admitted to being a 'fantasy' and methylamphetamine cook.
Che Andrew Murray, in his early 30s, was described in court documents tendered for a bail application in 2014 as "the top of a substantial network of drug traffickers in the Sunshine Coast area".
Murray pleaded guilty in Brisbane Supreme Court to a string of charges against him, accrued from 2012 to July this year.
They include making and selling methylamphetamine and GHB (fantasy), possessing cocaine and having counterfeit cash, a revolver and a sawn-off shotgun.
The drug producer told the earlier bail hearing he stopped taking drugs but returned to amphetamine use because of the "enormous stress" from being shot in the leg at his Mooloolaba home in November 2013.
His criminal history extends back to his late teens.
He was remanded in custody until his sentencing on January 27.
