AN ICE dealer who allegedly had $10,950 in cash inside a wallet stashed behind a McDonald's toilet will potentially kill an innocent motorist, a court has heard.
Cheyne Orcher drives off from police, often at high speeds, at any chance he gets, the Wodonga Magistrates Court heard on Thursday.
The 28-year-old was found hiding in a disabled toilet with a co-accused at the McDonald’s Homemaker Centre on Wednesday.
Police believe the co-accused stashed Orcher’s wallet and cash behind the toilet and that Orcher smashed his iPhone before police could search it.
A key to the vehicle being driven by Orcher – which had knives, scales, deal bags and drug residue inside – was found inside a sanitary bin in the female cubicle.
Orcher allegedly had half a gram of ice on him and the co-accused had $600 cash, and police believe the pair met for a drug deal.
It followed an incident in the early hours of November 18 last year where the 28-year-old allegedly had 8.3 grams of ice and multiple mobile phones at Athol Street.
Police came close to re-arresting him in Anderson Street on Australia Day, but he ran from a speeding car with stolen plates and avoided capture.
A search of the car found marijuana, two points of ice and a glass pipe.
The court heard Orcher, who doesn’t have a job, is a major player in the meth supply business in Albury-Wodonga, travelling between Melbourne.
He has been charged with trafficking and a string of other offences.
The court heard he had 22 pages of Victorian priors and a dozen pages of NSW priors, and is a major risk to the community.
Magistrate Peter Mithen denied his bail bid, to return on March 6.
