Court hears of bloody syringes as man remains in custody

BLOOD-stained syringes fell from the ceiling during raids of a car carrying a child and a suspected meth lab set-up, police will allege.

Kane Hadley, 34, was stopped by police on Central Avenue, Urraween, late on Monday after checks revealed he was serving a five-year driving ban.

It was also revealed the Ford Fairmont was only registered to be driven on the most direct route from Shepparton in Victoria to an address at Sunshine Acres.

Documents before the court allege Hadley's partner told police they were on their way home from a visit to Cash Converters.

Asked why he had a knife in the car, Hadley allegedly said he had been "cutting open bread rolls" with it.

When Hadley and his passengers were out of the car, used syringes allegedly fell "from roof lining onto the officers".

Powders and glassware were also seized and taken to the Hervey Bay Police Station, where they were undergoing drug testing on Tuesday.

A ticket was issued at the scene for failing to restrain a child.

Hadley fronted the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Tuesday charged with four traffic offences, possession of a knife in a public place and failure to properly dispose of a syringe.

He was allowed on bail on the grounds he post a $2000 surety, which had not occurred on Tuesday night.

It will be alleged the chemicals recovered from the car boot were to be used in the production of dangerous drugs.
