TWO suspected drug traffickers have been denied bail after police seized methamphetamine, prohibited weapons and large amounts of cash in two separate drug raids on Wednesday.
George Borg, 32, of Kyneton, was taken from the Bendigo Magistrates Court yesterday screaming “you’re happy now, motherf...ers” at police and calling them “poofters” after his bail application was refused.
At the time of his arrest he was on bail for another indictable matter.
Jason Spear, 33, also of Kyneton, represented himself in court. Both denied allegations of drug trafficking.
Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Alan Walker told the court that on March 20, police raided Spear’s Kyneton property, and found him and two men, who all appeared drug-affected, in a bathroom.
It is alleged police found illegal weapons, digital scales, two small bags of methamphetamine, cannabis and two mobile phones at the property. The men also had cash in their pockets.
The court heard Spear told police he used methamphetamine but that he was not selling drugs. He told the court yesterday that police did not find enough drugs to convict him of trafficking and that many of the weapons found were “display, collectors’” items.
Police allege the raid on Borg’s property in Kyneton uncovered prohibited weapons, $6000 in cash and two small bags with methamphetamine residue.
Borg’s defence counsel Graeme Davis said his client received the cash from a friend after he airbrushed his friend’s car, but his friend had later denied this claim.
Mr Davis said the evidence in the prosecution’s case was scant, but Magistrate Bruce Cottrill said there was a substantial case against the pair. They were both remanded until April 18.
