Sentencing him to four years and 10 months in April, Judge Goodin said Dellabella had played a significant role in the drug operation being run from his home.
During the police raid on September 28 last year officers found 1.5 kilos of cocaine, electronic scales, cocaine presses, a metal block and cash.
Dellabella told the court in April that he developed a cocaine addiction after an accident in 2016 and hadn't played a leading role in the operation which was being run by others.
