UPDATE: Accused ice queen locked up again

AN ACCUSED ice-dealing mum is back behind bars after allegedly offending just days after she was granted bail.

Samuella Lorraine Togo, 36, appeared in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on September 12 on 77 charges.

Police allege she was making up to $10,000 a week in meth sales.

The mum of eight was given bail on the condition she report to police three times a week, but her bail was revoked on Thursday.

Police Prosecutor Donna Sperling told the court on Wednesday that Ms Togo was caught committing a minor offence two days after she was released.

"There was a lot of discussion when that happened on whether police should bring her back, but as (it was not) an indictable offence, she was given the benefit of the doubt," Snr Const Sperling said.

"She then committed further offences so the benefit of the doubt went away."


The court heard Ms Togo was scheduled for a court appearance September 21 but failed to show up.

On September 22, she presented a medical certificate to a police station to explain her absence.

She was later arrested and on Wednesday pleaded guilty to breaching bail and failing to comply with court orders.

Police Prosecutor Donna Sperling questioned the authenticity of the doctor's certificate.

"The certificate seems to be filled out very poorly," Snr Const Sperling said.

"Doctors can usually fill out forms fairly well."

Police also allege Ms Togo drove unlicensed since her first bail hearing.

Magistrate Stephen Guttridge ordered Ms Togo to remain in custody on Wednesday night so the doctor's certificate could be investigated.

Snr Const Sperling said the doctor, who was named on the certificate, confirmed it was legitimate.

But on Thursday, Ms Togo accepted to have her bail removed.

Ms Togo's matters will be mentioned again in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on October 26.
