    Cocaine arrest sheds light on Tweddle's fatal end
    A mission to keep the party going turned fatal for Sydney man Gary Tweddle on the night he vanished into Blue Mountains bushland. None of his friends imagined the awful tragedy that would unfold when the much-loved 23-year-old went to buy some cocaine.
    -----
    Police arrested Christopher Thomas Pambos, of Earlwood, two weeks after Tweddle vanished.
    Phone records indicate Mr Pambos arranged to drive from Sydney to the Blue Mountains to meet with the British-born computer sales representative on the night he went missing.
    Court documents reveal the 26-year-old had planned to sell Tweddle 2.5 grams of cocaine in five small resealable plastic bags.
    He tried to meet Tweddle sometime between 10pm on July 15 and 2am on July 16 but the pair lost contact. They never met.

    Drug dealer linked to Gary Tweddle death sent to jail

    A drug dealer who tried to sell cocaine to Sydney man Gary Tweddle on the night he fell off a cliff and died in the Blue Mountains has been sentenced to two years' jail.
    Christopher Thomas Pambos was the only one who knew where Mr Tweddle was trying to get to on the night he vanished but kept silent as thousands joined the largest search ever conducted in the Blue Mountains.
    -----
    When Pambos saw news reports about Mr Tweddle's disappearance he ignored a call from police and threw his mobile phone away.
    "Pambos stated that he did this, and did not contact police, as he was scared of being exposed as a drug dealer and was worried about the consequence of this," according to facts tendered to the District Downing Centre Court.
    -----
    During this time police tracked Pambos down after finding his number on Mr Tweddle's iPad under a false name.
    Pambos had already been arrested and appeared in court by the time Mr Tweddle's body was found on a cliff ledge at Katoomba, six weeks after his disappearance.
    -----

    COD: Gary Tweddle -
    Documents tendered at his sentencing detailed how Mr Tweddle died as a result of lung puncture caused after falling 23 metres from Sublime Point at Katoomba.
    "There was no suggestion of foul play in the death of Mr Tweddle and his death is believed to be as a result of misadventure," the papers said.
    Police said he was found wearing the same clothes he went missing in with a wallet containing his ID and $1300 cash.
    An iPhone found 70 metres further down the cliff had no battery but showed Mr Tweddle had been using a compass and flashlight app at the time he fell.
