Man busted six times in less than a month

A MAN who was allegedly busted by police six times in the space of just a few weeks remains on bail.

July was not a good month for Jade Anthony Holmes, who, among other things, stands accused of hanging around town with uncapped syringes, robbing a house and driving disqualified.

On the morning of July 17, Holmes was a passenger in a car which had been pulled over in Urangan.

When he emptied his pockets, police allegedly found a brown tobacco packet containing an uncapped hypodermic needle.

Police will allege Holmes told them he was a Type 1 diabetic but failed to provide them with a contact for a doctor and was subsequently charged with failing to dispose of the needle.

Days later, Holmes was charged with disqualified driving after he was allegedly busted behind the wheel at a petrol bowser in Urangan.

The same week, Holmes was a passenger in another car when police recognised him sitting in the back, allegedly appearing anxious and aggressive.

They later found an uncapped syringe on the floor.

It will be alleged that when Holmes was asked if he had anything he shouldn't, that he said no but when they searched his pockets they found another two uncapped syringes.

On July 30, Holmes' fingerprints were allegedly matched to a metal cash tin which had been raided during a burglary in Aimee Drive.

Over the following two weeks, Holmes was picked up two more times, once for allegedly possessing LSD and then for breaching bail.

While in the watchhouse, Holmes allegedly committed a further offence of obstructing police by attempting to block officers from closing the cell door.

Holmes was granted bail soon after.

The charges were before the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Thursday but adjourned until September 18.
