A Geraldton man has landed in more trouble with the law — literally with his pants down — after he was allegedly caught trying to cheat a urine drug test using a “deception device”. Simon Sebastian Reale, 32, pleaded not guilty in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court on Thursday to eight charges involving drugs, weapons and thousands of dollars in cash stemming from a police raid on a Webberton shed on October 13. At the time, police say they caught the former real estate agent “red-handed” breaking 45 grams of methamphetamines into smaller units for sale. Thousands of dollars in cash and vouchers, 28g of cannabis, ammunition, a stolen metal detector, an electric shock weapon and drug paraphernalia were also allegedly uncovered in the shed. Mr Reale has denied knowing what was in the shed, with a lawyer previously suggesting the contraband could have been left by others during “drug parties” held at the location. During last week’s appearance, a community corrections representative told the court that an observer had allegedly seen Mr Reale use a device to provide a urine sample during court-mandated testing. “The observer witnessed a deception device used to produce a urine stream,” she said. “He could be seen squeezing with his hands to produce the urine and, as a result, urinated on the ground and his hands.” In court, Mr Reale became visibly agitated and denied the account, saying: “I swear there was no device. “I was nervous, she was staring right at me. I wish she would have said something, I would have shown her ... let me do it again, I promise there wasn’t a device.” Magistrate Chris Miocevich revoked Mr Reale’s bail, saying he did not believe him. “There’s been suspicions you were using a device previously, which is why I ordered certain conditions around your testing,” Mr Miocevich said. “I’m told the person there has seen the device.” Mr Reale was remanded in custody at Greenough Regional Prison. He will next appear in the District Court on August 27 when the matter will be set down for trial.
