Jessie Lionel Murray was refused bail in Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday despite his lawyer saying he needed to be at liberty to receive treatment for his drug and mental health issues.

Police documents tendered to the court said Murray walked into the shop just after 10.30am and went to the fridge, where he picked up a bottle of Coke.

He then went to the counter and asked the shop owner for a piece of paper to write something down.

The owner handed over some paper, however later told police he believed Murray was affected by drugs due to his “erratic and unusual” behaviour.

Murray then allegedly said “give me the money, give me money, I got a piece” while holding his right hand between his pants and jacket.

The shop owner told Murray he didn’t have any money, allegedly prompting Murray to punch him in the face, jump the counter and grab money from the till before fleeing.

Employees from a nearby shop were alerted to the incident and followed Murray along Caldwell Street. They later told police $50 notes were falling out of his pants as he walked.

When police arrived a short time later and cornered Murray, he allegedly pulled money out ofthefront of his pants and threw it in the air. He was arrested without incident.

Police allege Murrayadmitted to taking the bottle of Coke however said he didn’t remember any robbery.He also allegedly told them he had consumed ice earlier in the day, however in court on Wednesday defence lawyer Lemar Miakhel said Murray denied any such admission.

Magistrate Mark Douglass refused to release Murray, citing his lengthy criminal record and the likelihood of prison timeif convicted.

“It appears to be a strong prosecution case founded on admissions,” he said.

The matter was adjourned to November 30.
