    QLD 536 David Andrew Gardiner Bailed 

    29 July 2013

    The man at the centre of a love triangle responsible for the discovery of $2 million of suspected stolen property has been given bail on condition he live with his estranged wife.

    David Andrew Gardiner looked at his wife of three years, Bianca Rinaudo, as he fronted the Brisbane Magistrates Court for a third time in four days on Monday – this time on drug production and trafficking charges.

    Gardiner, 35, was first before court on Friday after being arrested when millions of dollars in property was found in his rented sheds, on Brisbane’s southside, so over-laden with valuables it has been dubbed ”an Aladdin’s Cave”.

    While Gardiner attempted to communicate with Ms Rinaudo from the glass-enclosed dock of Magistrates Court No. 3, she sat quietly in the public gallery with an as yet unidentified man.

    Gardiner was not required to enter a plea to 13 new charges, including trafficking, producing, supplying and possessing dangerous drugs, possessing explosives, illegal weapons and documents that instruct on how to produce dangerous drugs.

    Police did request Gardiner be refused bail, saying the fact that his tally of serious offences had climbed to 35 and that he was a risk of committing further offences.

    However, Magistate Chris Callagahan rejected the application, saying nothing had changed in circumstances since Gardiner was granted bail by another magistrate at the weekend.

    Solicitor Lyle Parker, for Gardiner, said his client did want to alter his bail address so that he could live with Ms Rinaudo.

    Ms Rinaudo, when approached by police prosecutors, said she was happy to not only provide Gardiner with a home, but also provide for him financially.

    Gardiner’s co-accused and the so-called third link in the love triangle – Brodie Lea Swan – has also been charged with a swag drug offences.

    Swan, 22, has fronted court and will reappear on the same charge.

    Property unearthed by police inside Gardiner’s sheds included up to 40 motorbikes, cars, electrical goods and jewellery worth in excess of $1 million.

    Gardiner, a custom car builder, operated a second-hand goods business from several rented properties on Musgrave Rd at Coopers Plains.

    Ms Rinaudo, who is understood to be trying to save her marriage after the pair split earlier this year, sat inside the court wrapped in a leopard print scarf that she used to disguise her husband’s head when he was released on bail on Saturday.

    Ms Rinaudo, a model and business owner, said Gardiner could reside at her residence at Sherwood, in Brisbane’s west.

    Both have been remanded to appear on 16 August 2013.

    QLD 530 Lana Watmough Sentence Manifestly Inadequate 

    14 Oct 2014

    The Queensland Attorney-General has appealed against the ”manifestly inadequate” sentence given to a woman who assaulted a vision-impaired pensioner on a Gold Coast bus.

    Lana Janet Watmough, 21, walked free from Southport Magistrates Court after she assaulted and racially vilified the 77-year-old man while they were riding on the bus in Kirra.

    She and a friend sparked national outrage in February when a video of the attack was posted online.

    It showed Watmough kicking and spitting at Paul Buttigieg as he rode a bus home from his daily bowls club outing in February.

    Watmough was sentenced to two months jail, wholly suspended, and 12 months probation in the Southport Magistrates Court.

    QLD 527 Lana Watmough Pleaded Guilty To Assault 

    17 Sep 2014

    A woman who assaulted an elderly man on a Gold Coast bus has been given a two-month suspended jail sentence.

    Lana Watmough, 21, pleaded guilty to assaulting the 77-year-old visually impaired man in February.

    Southport Magistrates Court was shown video of the incident filmed by a fellow passenger.

    It showed Watmough and a 17-year-old girl yelling abuse, punching and kicking the man.

    Magistrate Gary Finger described the violence as unprovoked and absolutely deplorable.

    He sentenced Watmough to two months in jail, suspended for 18 months.

    She was also sentenced to 12 months’ probation for public nuisance.

    Co-accused Lani Cameron remains in police custody and is due to be sentenced at a later date.

    • Lana Watmough avoids jail SOURCE 4:47 am on Monday 20 October 2014 Permalink

      A Gold Coast woman who abused and assaulted an elderly man on a bus has narrowly avoided jail but been slammed as “deplorable” by a magistrate and heckled outside court.

      Larna Watmough, 21, pleaded guilty to serious assault of a person over 60 and public nuisance during an appearance in Southport Magistrates Court.

      Magistrate Gary Finger didn’t hold back in condemning Watmough’s behaviour, labelling her and her co-accused as “louts” and “idiots”.

      “You attacked a defenceless old man with impaired vision … you certainly must be proud of yourself,” he said.

      “Your response to his comment can only be described as appalling.

      “Your actions were deplorable. To say they were deplorable is an understatement.”

      Watmough was given a two-month prison sentence, wholly suspended for 18 months, for the assault and ordered to pay $500 in compensation.

      She also received a 12-month probation for the public nuisance charge.

    QLD 523 Mitchell Watmough Defends Lana With Bullshit 

    As all good brothers do, Mitchell Watmough defends his sister Lana Watmough, and bleats to the media the following.

    04 March 2014

    The brother of one of the two girls accused of assaulting an elderly man on a Gold Coast bus has launched an attack on the victim, saying he is well known for his behaviour.

    Mitchell Watmough took to Facebook to defend his sister Larna, 21, after she and friend Layni Cameron, 17, were charged with assaulting disabled pensioner Paul Buttigieg.

    Mr Watmough claimed Mr Buttigieg started the melee when he called the girls ”sluts and whores”, spat on them and kicked his sister in the face.

    The pensioner has denied the claims, saying he only told them to stop swearing.

    Mr Watmough said the girls were being falsely portrayed as ”terrible villains” and his sister was a ”huge victim”.

    The Surfers Paradise man likened the furious social media backlash against them to the cyber-bullying of Charlotte Dawson.

    ”Larna isn’t a racial person, completely far from it; Larna’s closest friends are all indigenous with one of her indigenous friends spending last Christmas with our family,” he wrote in the post.

    ”Larna never said a racial thing with the other girl saying ‘we are in abo land’.”

    ”This man ‘labeled by the media as innocent’ is known to police and local residence all around the area for being extremely abusive, degrading to women by spitting at them, completely sexist and known to be harassing people on a weekly basis.”

    ”He has spat at mothers with children’s and abused women in shopping centers.”

    ”The video doesn’t show Larna try to pull the other girl off and stop it at the start, while Lana tried to help she dropped her phone on the ground tried to pick it up and the man kicked her in the face which she has an injuries to her head from which then she reacted to.”

    ”I am not on here to defend the actions after that as they are completely unacceptable and Larna is completely remorseful now.”

    ”My first sight of the video I was also disgusted and embarrassed, but after learning the video has been edited to make only the girls look like terrible villains I now see what the media has done to create a massive story.”

    He called on people on social media to let the legal case take its course.

    ”I want to thank all my friends that have been supportive and never jumped on the bandwagon with the circus before knowing both sides.”

    Unfortunately Mitchell Watmough wasn’t alone on ‘facebook’ in his bleating, another relative, Aaron Watmough also peddled similar nonsense against the victim in their attempts to defend Lana Watmough.

    So far, Mitchell Watmough’s claims ‘against’ the victim appear to be little more than bullshit, that wouldn’t pass muster for courtroom evidence.

    • Accused Huge Victims SOURCE 3:49 am on Monday 20 October 2014 Permalink

      All these people are commenting on an edited, cropped video and numerous false accusations on top of fictional journalism.

      “My first sight of the video, I was also disgusted and embarrassed, but after learning the video has been edited to make only the girls look like terrible villains, I now see what the media has done to create a massive story.”

      Mr Watmough also denied his sister and Cameron had hurled racial slurs at Mr Buttigieg but had been singing My Nigga by rap artist YG.

      Watmough, who is on bail, and Cameron, who has been remanded in custody, will return to court on April 23. 2014

    • crimebot 4:00 am on Monday 20 October 2014 Permalink

      There were calls to jail the girls and social media went on the attack over the incident.

      Mitchell Watmough, the brother of Larna and another relative Aaron Watmough have defended Larna saying that the young teenager who made the video has created a circus, and that the video was edited to make his sister look guilty.

      They are accused of assault, but now the online attacks are towards THEM.

      He accused the teenager of taking the video to Channel 9 before it was shown to the police.

      Many of the vicious comments on social media called for the girls to be brutally raped, murdered and assaulted.
