Alleged brothel given as address in bid for bail

Kane Thomson (18) appeared in custody at Rockingham Magistrates Court for a breach of a police order and allegedly carrying a weapon with intent to cause fear. The police prosecutor told Magistrate Susan Richardson the weapon charge would be upgraded to one of a threat to kill.

The prosecutor strongly opposed bail being granted. He said Thomson could not go back to a particular address because his mother did not feel safe.

Thomson had given another address but it was not considered a suitable address because it was an alleged illegal brothel in which it was suspected there was drug use, the prosecutor said.

Granting bail was also opposed by the prosecutor to protect Thomson´┐Żs mother and there were concerns that Thomson would continue to offend and hurt his family.

Magistrate Richardson reprimanded Thomson for talking over the prosecutor.

She told Thomson his bail was revoked, to which Thomson replied with a barrage of swearing. He was led away from the court.

He is due to re-appear in court today, August 7.
