Accused Biloeila intruder's mug snapped in CCTV

ACCUSED by police of being the intruder caught on CCTV at a Biloela house, Jesse Michael Holland says his memory that night wasn't clear after drinking cask wine.

Despite police opposing his bail application before Gladstone Magistrates Court, Holland, 20, was granted strict bail with conditions to live with his mum in Biloela.

Magistrate Penelope Hay imposed a night curfew and ordered him not to go near two properties where police allege he entered at night.

With his mum and a handful of young mates in the court, Holland appeared in the dock charged with entering a dwelling at night in company at 12.30am on March 28; unlawful entry of a motor vehicle; entering premises at 1am with intent; and possession of drugs and utensils.

Prosecutor Sgt Barry Stevens put to the court the case against Holland was strong with one witness identifying him from a photo board as the person he saw enter his Ford Falcon. Police allege Holland also made some admissions.

He has not named an alleged co-offender police say entered a house when Holland is accused of entering the Ford parked outside.

Police say Holland told officers a mate was talking about breaking into houses to search for money and alcohol but his memory was poor because he drank a 2L cask of wine.

Police say clothes similar to those seen on CCTV were found at Holland's home.

His case was adjourned to Biloela.
