Massie man’s drug case adjourned to 2015

A 66-YEAR-OLD man accused by police of trafficking in marijuana had charges against him adjourned in Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday.

Thomas Edward Martin was not in court when his solicitor Nathan Bouchier asked the court for an adjournment as negotiations on some charges between defence and police continued.

Martin was arrested after a police search of his Massie property near Warwick in August allegedly uncovered 30kg of marijuana with an estimated street value of $500,000, a number of weapons and $300,000 cash.

Police searched the property as part of a cold case investigation into the 1974 disappearance and suspected murder of Barbara McCulkin and her daughters Vicki and Leanne.

He has not been required to enter any pleas to charges including trafficking in dangerous drugs, possessing illicit drugs of a quantity above the schedule and unlawfully possessing weapons.

Martin remains on bail with strict conditions.

Magistrate Damian Carroll adjourned the case for mention back in the same court on January 28.
