An ice dealer who allowed a man to strip down a stolen four-wheel-drive at his Wodonga home will be sentenced next month.
Peter John Sinclair, also known as Sinclair-Hocking, has admitted to a string of offences dating back as far as October 2019.
In one of the most serious offences, the 34-year-old allowed his Gilbert Street home to be used to take parts from a Toyota LandCruiser.
The Wodonga Magistrates Court heard another man stole the vehicle from Mansfield.
Sinclair's home was raided last December with scales, cash, drug dealing evidence and a key tag for the vehicle found.
A check of his phone determined he had sold at least five grams of ice in the previous day.
A search of Sinclair's bedroom found a snorkel, mats, a turbo timer and a car battery, with a RhinoRack roof rack found in the yard.

The vehicle had been dumped at the Wodonga train station, with about $3400 worth of items stripped from it.
Police seized ice, scales and cash from the same home on July 30 last year.
NSW officers also caught him with 5.5 grams of ice on the bridge over the Wodonga Creek, next to the Lincoln Causeway, on October 21, 2019.
Sinclair had been seen holding a black ADIDAS bum bag over the water, and appeared to be contemplating whether to drop it.
He kept it and was arrested, with a search finding drugs, scales and an iPhone.
He had NSW warrants and was taken back to Albury, where he remained in jail until May last year.
The 34-year-old has been undergoing drug treatment since February 24 and still has about a month left.
He will be sentenced after finishing rehab and will return to court on June 29.
