ON THE RUN: Man bolts into yard at sight of police

A ROUTINE patrol by police along a Dalby street was too much to bare for a 42-year-old Maryborough man, causing him to bolt into a person's yard.

Michael Bruce Ryan was walking along Myall St on September 9 unbeknown to police according to senior sergeant Terry McCullough.

"He saw the police car, and has then run into a nearby yard, upon which police located and chased him," he said.

"They've detained him for the purpose of a search, where they found a glass pipe, clip seal bags, and white powder suspected of being methamphetamines."

Ryan was arrested and charged drug possession, possession of utensils, possession of items used in connection to a drug crime, and trespassing.

Snr sgt McCullough said Ryan was remanded in custody until September 11, when he was sentenced on all four charges.

He was given three months jail for drug possession, and three sentences of 14 days jail for the remaining offences.

Ryan was given immediate parole that day.

Convictions were recorded.
