Accused of thefts from hospitals

A MAN alleged to have broken into two hospitals and stolen the personal items of staff yelled abuse at a magistrate after being denied bail.

Michael Robert Naylor was released from jail in May but was allegedly back to his criminal ways just four months later.

Police allege he broke into the dental clinic at Maryborough Hospital on September 29 and stole cash, then broke into St Stephen's Private Hospital in November and stole cash and an MP3 player.

The 42-year-old was represented in Maryborough Magistrates Court by barrister Sarah Laikind, who applied for bail on his behalf.

Ms Laikind said Naylor had a background of substance abuse but had been making progress towards rehabilitation.

But Prosecutor Sergeant Michael Quirk objected to bail because of Naylor's criminal history.

Magistrate John Smith agreed there was an unacceptable risk of Naylor re-offending.

Bail was refused and Naylor was not happy.

“You f****d me up when I was on a roll, Your Honour, thank you – I was doing positive,” he yelled out.

His profanities continued as he was led out of the courthouse by police.

The case was set for mention on December 7.
