A FORMER Sydney luxury car dealer turned heroin trafficker who was once on death row has secured his transfer home after 20 years in foreign jails by using Facebook and crowdfunding site Pozible.
Martin Garnett, 45, secured the $19,287 target he needed to transfer from a prison in Indiana to NSW on Sunday afternoon.
His mother, 72-year-old pensioner Jan Garnett, reported on Facebook that prison guards cheered him on as the sum of the money raised began nearing the target on crowdfunding site Pozible.
“He got a friendly guard to look up the site … now walking to the phone, different guards are calling out to him ‘hey Marty, it is up to $17,980’. He is over the moon,” she wrote.
