Police have not named the 23 year old

Extract from: Cairns Post

THIS is the man accused of breaking into an adult shop and having sex with blow-up dolls in a bizarre series of alleged crimes in Cairns that we reported a week ago.

His leg in a cast, the 23-year-old limped from the Cairns watch-house late yesterday afternoon, just hours after police arrested him.

He was charged with breaking into businesses in the CBD, including the Laneway Adult Shop off Spence St three times in the past month.

The man allegedly smashed his way into the shop, had sex with blow-up dolls and discarded them in an alley.

He is also accused of breaking into the Sapphire Bar by smashing a hole near the top of the roof and dropping 15m to the floor.

The hunt for the suspect ended yesterday when he was detained at his home and taken to Cairns police station where he was questioned and charged.

The alleged crimes, revealed by The Cairns Post earlier this month, made headlines across the world, with dozens of newspapers and blogs as far away as the UK, US, Canada, India and Jamaica featuring the story.

On two occasions, a doll named “Jungle Jane” was allegedly stolen from the Laneway Adult Shop.

The shop’s owner said the alleged offender had a habit of cleaning up the mess he had made at his premises.

    It pays to wash after sex. You might get herpes!

  3. His leg in a cast … also accused of breaking into the Sapphire Bar by smashing a hole near the top of the roof and dropping 15m to the floor

    I’d call him “STUPID” or maybe “JUNGLE JANE JUMPER” 😉

  4. Handsome brute, isn’t he? No wonder he went for inflatables.

  5. It is rather unusual to publish photos of people charged – they usually show photos of the victim … oh, they did that already, didn’t they!

  6. If ever there was a case where the accused should have covered his face from the media, this was it. That guy’s image would be all over the world’s media & internet by now. Strangely, I bet some people out there would even hail him as some kind of hero!
