Jamil Hopoate pleads guilty to cocaine supply

The former Bronco faced a Sydney court today and pleaded guilty to one count of supplying a prohibited drug in a large commercial quantity.

Hopoate was caught in a police sting over cocaine supply at Botany in Sydney’s south last year.

Officers intercepted half a tonne of cocaine imported on a plane from the UK to Sydney in May 2021 and swapped it with a neutral powder before waiting for someone to collect it.

Hopoate was allegedly caught carrying eight-kilogram blocks in a backpack, which he was then accused of ditching, before leading police on a pursuit over fences and through backyards.

Hopoate will be sentenced in June.
