One false step costs
ONE wrong move has seen one Mossman man cop $3600 in fines after breaching his bail conditions and being caught in possession of a bong.
Zeke Dowdle failed to attend the Mossman Police Station on October 9 as part of his parole conditions and when police went to speak with him, they discovered him in possession of a bong and subsequently charged him on October 16 for both charges.
Magistrate Braes told Dowdle his had come within a “hairs breath away from prison” and if there was another offence there would be a “bed waiting for you (Mr Dowdle) at Lotus Glen”.
Dowdle received a $300 fine for breaching bail conditions, $300 for possession of a utensil, $500 for breaching two counts of a community service order for failing to do his community service and $2500 for several previous convictions.
