Second nightclubworker in court
A SECOND employee of the CMoog Nightclub in Byron Bay has been released on conditional bail after presenting herself for questioning at Byron Bay Police Station on Monday night.
Mia Thomas, 21, of Ewingsdale, appeared in custody in Lismore Local Court yesterday on four charges of supplying a prohibited drug and one charge of supplying a prohibited drub on an ongoing basis.
Thomas was charged with allegedly supplying ecstasy on five occasions between June 10 and July 8 this year.
Police prosecutor Gary Ducasse said he would not object to Thomas being granted bail provided the conditions of her bail were strict.
Magistrate Nick Reimer said the conditions for bail would include not contacting the coaccused, Brunswick Heads man and fellow C-Moog worker Shane Nicholas Austin, or any other CMoog employees.
Magistrate Reimer also said Thomas could not go within 50 metres of the nightclub.
Thomas has agreed to forfeit $5000 if she breaches her bail conditions.
Another person also put up another $5000, which would also be lost if Thomas breached bail.
Thomas has not entered a plea and will reappear on September 20 in Lismore Local Court.
The charges follow a police raid of the C-Moog Nightclub on Saturday morning where coaccused Shane Nicholas Austin was arrested and charged with supplying a prohibited drug.
Austin was released on bail on Monday.
