Meth cook jailed after skipping bail

A DRUG cook, who skipped bail and fled to Queensland following a meth bust on the NSW mid north coast, has been jailed.

Karina Greenwood was in the process of cooking methamphetamines when police raided her caravan on the Pacific Hwy, near Coffs Harbour in January, 2011.

The discovery of the active drug lab forced the Koala Villas Caravan Park into lock down until HAZMAT teams gave the all clear.

Greenwood, 48 and her partner were arrested and charged with drug manufacturing but soon after, they ignored bail conditions and headed north.

Coffs Harbour detectives travelled to Ipswich earlier this year and brought Greenwood back to NSW where she was charged with breaching bail.

Charges against another co-accused woman were dropped but Greenwood pleaded guilty last week to two counts of manufacturing a prohibited drug.

She has since been sentenced to two years jail but with time served, will eligible for parole as early as January next year.
