Man on explosives, theft and drug charges refused bail

A 22-YEAR-OLD man accused of a spate of offences committed in Toowoomba has been refused bail.

Jesse Lee Jenkins was taken into custody after his arrest on December 17 on 15 charges including unlawful use of a motor vehicles, disqualified driving, unlawful possession of weapons, unlawfully possessing explosives, burglary and drug related matters.

He was not in Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday when his solicitor Claire Graham applied for bail on his behalf.

Ms Graham said her client intended contesting at least four of the charges and if not granted bail might spend an inordinate amount of time in custody.

Her client had work available upon his release and he had been referred to the Alcohol and Other Drugs Service for counselling, she said.

Police objected to bail.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck refused bail and remanded Jenkins in custody to appear for hearing mention back in the same court on April 12.
