Man remanded in custody after drug raid

UPDATE SATURDAY: Two people have faced court following a police raid, which allegedly netted 1000 marijuana plants.

Gladstone police found the alleged plants on a Baffle Creek property along with an alleged amount of marijuana.

A 49-year-old man from Baffle Creek and a 41-year-old woman from Deepwater were both charged with producing dangerous drugs and possessing dangerous drugs.

The pair faced a Gladstone court on Friday, after the alleged crop was found during a raid on Thursday afternoon.

Gladstone CIB Detective Senior Sergeant Luke Peachey said it was too early to put a value on the alleged drugs.

Kylie Elizabeth O'Neill faced court on Friday morning charged with possessing marijuana exceeding 500g or 100 plants, and producing the same amount.

Ms O'Neill was granted bail.

Her case was adjourned to Bundaberg Magistrates Court for a mention on August 29.

Ms O'Neill will be required to report to Agnes Water Police Station once a week and will not be allowed to attend the premises where the alleged drugs were located.

Duty lawyer Megan Creaser said Ms O'Neill needed bail so she could look after her animals, particularly some goats that she was hand-rearing.

In deciding to grant bail, Magistrate Penelope Hay took into account the fact that Ms O'Neill had to look after her disabled son and care for her animals.

Gregg Edward Haywood faced the same charges as Ms O'Neill but was not granted bail.

Ms Creaser also represented Mr Haywood. She said that he was seeking bail so that he could tend to his animals.

His case was also adjourned to Bundaberg Magistrates Court for a mention on August 29 at 9am and he will be remanded in custody until that date.

The police prosecutor opposed bail in both cases.

Police said anyone with information that could assist with the matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000 or
