A Geraldton man arrested by gang crime officers during a dramatic car stop in Perth earlier this year is set to face further charges as he seeks to make a second bail application. Jayden James Irvine appeared via video link from Greenough Regional Prison in Geraldton Magistrates Court on Monday for a bail application. He is charged with a string of offences including possessing a firearm with circumstances of aggravation and possessing stolen or unlawfully obtained property. The 27-year-old man was arrested back in June after detectives swooped on a white BMW during a traffic stop in Perth and allegedly found the modified .22 handgun, ammunition and a silencer. Perth Magistrate’s Court previously heard police also found $19,000 in cash and a quantity of a chemical known as 1,4-Butanediol. Butanediol is a chemical used to make paint thinner and other solvent products but is also a depressant substance sometimes used to make the drug GHB, or “liquid ecstasy”. Prosecutor acting Sergeant Paul White said Mr Irvine was originally granted bail on June 24, which was later varied on July 4. The court was told his surety withdrew, an arrest warrant was issued and Mr Irvine was subsequently apprehended on August 16. Magistrate Angus Hockton questioned why Mr Irvine did not present to court to vary his bail. Defence Lawyer Paul Holmes said his client panicked when surety was withdrawn and he wanted to go back to Geraldton. He said Mr Irvine had time to reflect on his actions as well as people prepared to support him. Outlining a case for bail, Holmes suggested Mr Irvine be placed on strict conditions and a new surety put in place. Sgt White opposed bail, stating that Mr Irvine and his partner were currently under investigation for other serious offences. The potential charges relate to a search warrant executed in July, where it’s alleged ammunition and unlawfully obtained property were discovered. While he conceded Mr Irvine had not yet been charged, Sgt White said he was certainly a suspect along with his surety. Magistrate Angus Hockton said he would not consider a bail application until he could ascertain the strength of the prosecutions case. Mr Irvine will re-appear in Geraldton Magistrates Court on September 21.
