A one-time elite level triathlete has been caught with a large haul of party drugs cocaine and ecstasy in a bumbag and down his underpants.
Blayden Meagher, 30, pleaded guilty in the County Court of Victoria on July 30 to multiple illegal drug charges, including trafficking a commercial quantity of MDMA.
Meagher's world turned on its head when he was pulled over by police near Carrum Downs, in Melbourne's southeast, on November 16 in 2019.
It followed reports from fellow motorists he was driving erratically, the court was told.

Meagher was then busted with 100 ecstasy tablets he had stored in a bumbag.
Police also found 26 deal bags containing cocaine stashed in his waistband, scales, deal bags and cash - some of which was bundled in his underwear.
Officers later raided an address in Bulleen where Meagher was living and found more drugs.
They seized 1.8kg of MDMA from an open safe, various other drugs, a box of needles and a large amount of cash.
Meagher was then exposed as a drug trafficker after analysis of his phone revealed photos of drugs on scales and a text message exchange 'discussing the sale of drugs', according to the Herald Sun.
The court was told Meagher, a former student at the exclusive Southwood Grammar, had a privileged upbringing and his involvement in a drug racket was a 'shock to the family' - who have stood by him.
He studied a double-degree at Deakin University before forging a career in carpentry.
Meagher, who also pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine, will look to take up rowing after finishing his jail stint.
