Young mum accused of drug trafficking breaches bail

A YOUNG mum accused of drug trafficking sobbed hysterically after she was remanded in custody for breaching her bail twice in the 11 days since her freedom.

Marina Jackie Boubaris, 25, was granted bail on January 10 after she was charged following a protracted police investigation into the Sunshine Coast's drug trade.

The mother-of-two was charged with nine offences, including drug trafficking, possess dangerous drugs and unlawful use of a motor vehicle, about six weeks after she was granted bail on two supply dangerous drugs offences.

It will be alleged police officers found drug tick sheets, $320 in cash, two small fire works, an amount of drugs and two phones during her arrest.

Her bail was granted on strict conditions which included she live with her mother, adhere to a curfew and report daily to police.

Ms Boubaris appeared in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today where the court heard she'd breached her bail by failing to stay at her bail address and breaching her curfew.

While police applied to have Ms Boubaris' bail revoked, lawyer Cameron Hodges applied to keep her in the community.

His application was denied by Magistrate Haydn Stjernqvist who said she was an "unacceptable risk” of re-offending.

When Ms Boubaris' bail was revoked, she began to cry loudly before the video link was terminated.

She will appear in court again on February 28.
