Since February this year, Queensland Police have been searching for a suspected high-level Brisbane drug dealer known only as ‘Scott Green’ – after he appeared in a viral video first released online by Coffs Harbour rock band, The Dune Rats (see below).
In the video, the suspect can be seen stealing, using and eventually distributing drugs at timber Queenslander-style house parties.
Queensland police have since enlisted the public’s help in identifying a man who is wanted for questioning in regards to cigarettes, LSD, cocaine and ecstasy distribution at house parties in the River City.
The expression ‘Who’s Scott Green’ has since entered the Australian vernacular as a common expression used when searching for a drug dealer, and or, drugs.
However, during July’s Splendour in the Grass festival in Northern NSW, it became very clear that the this particular person is still at large in the greater South East Corner, according to the eye balls of both the Dune Rats and their fans.
The Betoota Advocate has taken it upon themselves to identify and profile every single male named Scott Green in the English-speaking world. What they do and where they are based.
Is this the answer to the long-standing question, Who’s Scott Green?
