Businesses attacked

DRUG withdrawals were blamed for the June 24 attack on two Mary Street businesses when the culprit faced Gympie Magistrates Court this week.

Jared Beau Davies said he had been coming down off heroin when he put his fist through the Farmer’s Fruit Exchange shop window and ran away up the street and smashed the old second-hand shop window.

After a witness heard the second smash, Davies, 29, was seen lying down in a yard in Channon Street and then in the middle of the road, flagging down motorists.

He was arrested by police, who said he had blood all over his right hand. After Davies was let out on bail, police spotted him urinating in public and gave him a warning, however, 20 minutes later he was seen doing it again on the side of the Bruce Highway.

Davies, of Stephens Street, Kandanga, was placed on probation for 12 months for the offences of wilful damage and public nuisance.

He was ordered to do 15 hours of community service for a charge of failing to appear, and eight hours for urinating in public. He was ordered to pay more than $1000 in compensation for damages.
