bikie gang member in Adelaide, who almost avoided being caught drug trafficking, has been jailed for more than four years. Twenty-nine-year-old Ross William Montgomery was pulled over by police while driving a hire car at Lockleys last October. The District Court heard his driver's licence had earlier been disqualified. Two mobile phones and about $3,000 were seized. But later during a search of his home, police became suspicious after overhearing a phone call between Montgomery and his girlfriend. Two sealed boxes of water, which had been in the boot of the car, were searched. They contained nearly $37,000 in cash, and methamphetamine with a street value of up to $18,000. At the time, police said Montgomery was a member of the Hells Angels bikie gang. Chief Judge Geoffrey Muecke said Montgomery had a troubled upbringing, and as a result no longer had contact with his family. He said this lack of family support saw Montgomery seek out other role models.
