An alleged bikie associate facing a string of serious drug and firearm charges has been accused of walking into the Perth Police Station carrying 3.8g of meth in his pocket and having a loaded gun in his car. More than a dozen rounds of ammunition, a flick-knife and $70,000 in cash were also allegedly found in Adam Anthony D’Agostino’s Toyota Hilux that was parked outside the station on November 27. Details regarding the circumstances that led to the alleged Mongols bikie associate’s arrest were revealed during his bail application hearing in Perth Magistrates Court on Friday. The court was told the 37-year-old was at the station to report to police as part of his bail conditions for other alleged offences. A police prosecutor said afterwards, officers carried out a search of Mr D’Agostino’s car, where they found a 9mm FEG PA63 pistol with a round in the chamber and a loaded magazine hidden inside the centre console. They also found a black flick-knife, a clip-seal bag containing about 3.8g of methamphetamine, 28 rounds of ammunition, 1g of cocaine, and a glass smoking implement with traces of white powder. Following the search of the car, police searched Mr D’Agostino’s Northbridge home and allegedly found a number of pharmaceutical products, including testosterone, vials of human growth hormone, 40mg of tamoxifen citrate, the weight-gain drug oxandrolone, trenbolone — an anabolic steroid — and more than 600ml of gamma-butyrolactone, commonly known as a “date rape” drug. In opposing bail, the police prosecutor told the court Mr D’Agostino was a “target” of the gang crime squad because of his alleged links to an outlaw motorcycle gang. He also said he had a lengthy record for weapons and drugs offences and that police alleged he was selling the drugs and carried the weapon “to facilitate his illicit activities”. But Mr D’Agostino’s lawyer Nick Terry argued the car his client drove to the station was driven by a number of other people, that there was a woman in the vehicle at the time of the arrest, and that police had to pull apart the console to retrieve the weapon. He also argued the drug charge against his client should be two separate charges because the other 3.8g of methamphetamine found during the search of his client’s home was not found in the house but in a different car parked at the property. Mr Terry said the way police had charged his client meant it was indictable and his matter would have to be heard in the District Court, where a delay to trial was now almost three years. “We say it is likely he will spend more time in custody awaiting trial than if he were to be found guilty,” he said. Mr Terry also denied police claims Mr D’Agostino was a Mongols associate, saying his client had never been a member of any outlaw motorcycle gang but that he was friends with a Mongols member. He argued the case against his client was not overwhelming, saying its strength would come down to forensic issues and that concerns regarding flight risk and risk of reoffending could be mitigated via strict bail conditions. But Magistrate Stephen Butcher said it was “pretty brazen” of Mr D’Agostino to walk into a police station allegedly carrying 3.8g of meth in his pocket, adding there was also a bullet in the chamber of the gun found in the car. He also said Mr D’Agostino had been convicted 12 times this year and he had real concerns about whether any conditions would mitigate the risk of reoffending. Mr Terry then asked Mr Butcher to consider home detention at a different address as a way to mitigate the risk. Mr Butcher ordered a home detention report and adjourned the hearing for two weeks.
