Ipswich man no longer facing trial over charges

AN IPSWICH man who pleaded guilty to a host of property, drug and monetary offences will have to wait an additional week until he learns his fate.

Michael Constantinos Giallourakis faced Brisbane Supreme Court on Monday where he was due to face a five day trial.

Instead he learnt some charges against him had been discontinued.

Crown Prosecutor Sal Vasta told the court Giallourakis now faced three charges including possession a dangerous drug, receiving stolen property and receiving illicit money stemming from a police raid on his Pine Mountain home on January 31 last year; Giallourakis pleaded guilty to these charges.

The court heard police uncovered a stash of stolen property during the raid including cars, jewellery, weapons and small amounts of methamphetamines and heroin.

Police also located zip-tie bags and scales during the raid.

Justice Debra Mullins remanded Giallourakis into custody ahead of being sentenced on July 28.
