Al­leged dealer de­nied

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A HAMITLON Is­land elec­tri­cian who has al­legedly been dodg­ing po­lice was re­fused bail when he ap­peared in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day fac­ing 25 drug-re­lated charges.

Robert Gra­ham Ivan Spring, 39, was found to be an un­ac­cept­able risk of re­of­fend­ing by Magistrate Simon Young after po­lice al­leged he had con­tin­ued to sup­ply metham­phetamine while avoid­ing them.

Mr Young was un­sat­is­fied with pos­si­ble bail ad­dresses, in­clud­ing one residing with a crown case wit­ness, and Mr Spring’s two pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions for fail­ing to ap­pear.

Duty lawyer El­iz­a­beth Smith said the fa­ther of two’s his­tory could be ex­plained by a con­fus­ing time dur­ing his mar­riage break­down.

Mr Spring will face court again on Au­gust 13.
