SA: Prosecution trying to charge Dale Paul Willingham in having a drum of drugs in his driveway in Burton

Hells Angels

Dale Paul Willingham, 39, described by police as Hells Angels member, appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Willingham is one among four arrested in police raids aimed on Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in South Australia as a part of a large nationwide operation. Cops charged him with trafficking in a large commercial quantity of a controlled drug, trafficking a controlled drug and four counts of possessing a prescription drug.

Police allege that they located and seized a trafficable quantity of methamphetamine, approximately 30 litres of fantasy (GHB), $5,000 cash and a clan lab at a Burton address.

Willingham’s lawyer told to the court that his client was at his property on home detention bail on pending charges when police raided his home and allegedly found a powder on the top of a fridge, which has not yet been tested.

Also police allege that they found a drum in the driveway of the property which police suspected may have contained drugs, the defence stated.

Biker News suggests that allegations with the drum are strange at least from that point of view that driveway is a territory with easy access to it and anyone could put that drum there.

Police prosecutor told the court the question is not too complicated and “It basically (comes) down to an amount of prescribed drugs being in the property/possession of the accused.”

Willingham did not apply bail and expected to return to the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on December 16.
