Man caught stuffing meth down his pants refused bail

A CASINO man who was allegedly caught stuffing methamphetamines down his pants when police burst into a motel where he was staying has been refused bail.

Zane Gregory, 24, came to the attention of police after a number of fraudulent transactions were reported that were using allegedly stolen credit card authorisation details in the Casino area.

Police allege Gregory stole items from the office of Casino's Clydesdale Motel and used those fraudulent documents to get accommodation at the Glen Villa Caravan Park on the Bruxner Hwy.

It is alleged Gregory purchased a laptop computer using fraudulent credit card details from Country IT at Casino before taking a taxi to the Millgate Motel on Centre St.

When he and 24-year-old Ammie Millard used Gregory's card to check in, police pounced.

At about 6pm on Wednesday as officers burst into the motel room it is alleged Gregory was seen trying to stuff 1.8g of methamphetamine down his pants.

A further 5.6g of methamphetamine was allegedly located in the room as well as a number of electrical items believed stolen or unlawfully obtained.

Gregory and Millard were taken to Casino police station and charged.

Yesterday they faced charges in Lismore court including three counts each of fraud, deemed supply of a prohibited drug and self administering prohibited drug.

Millard got conditional bail to reappear next month.

Gregory was refused bail to reappear in court today.
