Man asked for bail to alleged brothel

A WAIKIKI man was remanded in custody after allegedly threatening to kill his mother because she would not give him money to buy cannabis.

Kane Thomson (18) appeared in custody at Rockingham Magistrates Court this morning for a breach of police order and carrying a weapon with intent to cause fear.

The police prosecutor said the carry weapon charge would be upgraded to a threat to kill.

�There has been an issue at his current address,� he said.

�His mother would not give him money to buy cannabis. He got angry and made a threat to kill her. He can�t go back to that address – his mother does not feel safe.

�He has given another address which is an alleged illegal brothel.�

The prosecutor strongly opposed Thomson be bailed to the Port Kennedy address.

�We don�t believe it is a suitable address,� he said.

�It is widely known as an illegal brothel, where they do use and engage in drug use.�

He also opposed bail to protect the man�s mother, and concerns that he will continue to offend and hurt his family.

Magistrate Susan Richardson reprimanded Thomson for talking over the prosecutor, and revoked bail.

Thomson replied with a barrage of swearing and was led away from the court.

He is due to re-appear on Friday, August 7.
