IMPORTING testosterone through the mail has landed a Toowoomba man with a term of imprisonment.

Toowoomba District Court heard a Customs and Border Protection Service officer at the Brisbane International Mail Centre on March 28 last year had noticed a suspicious package addressed to Harristown man Mitchell David Arnold.

The package was found to contain about 100g of testosterone.

Two weeks later another package containing about 100g of testosterone addressed to the 28-year-old was intercepted at the same mail exchange, prompting a police search of Arnold's Toowoomba home.

Arnold admitted to importing the drug but claimed it was for his own personal use.

Prosecutor Caitlyn Thompson told the court Arnold had been on parole at the time of the offences having received an 18-month jail sentence, though released on immediate parole, from the same court in February 2013 for producing and possessing marijuana arising from police finding a crop of the drug growing inside a water tank on a vacant lot near Baillie Henderson Hospital.

Arnold had served out the remaining of that parole in custody plus another 196 days in pre-sentence custody arising from the testosterone charges.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of importing a tier one drug and one count each of producing and possessing a dangerous drug and possessing associated utensils including a needle and syringe.

His barrister Steve Kissick said the production charge arose from his client turning the powdered drug into liquid form to be used.

His client had accessed the product via the internet and instructed he used the drug for treating his depression.
