58yo Gympie man’s journey from important oils to meth cook dinner


A convicted 58-year-old gympie meth producer was in court again on Monday, accused of possessing a pipe, syringe, scale, measuring glass and clip-lock pouch.

Kyron Brougham Mills was sentenced to 18 months in prison on November 5, 2020 for making and possessing methamphetamine, but was entitled to immediate parole.

When Magistrate Chris Callaghan asked Mills if he was a “meth cook” he shook his head and said, “I just wanted essential oils.”

Eventually Mills admitted the charges, saying, “I accept that I am guilty.”

Mr Callaghan said if the district court judge had dealt with all the charges together, Mills would not have received a longer sentence.

“You will not be punished any further, but the confiscated items may expire,” he said.
