Manager of a popular car and clothing business has been denied bail despite his brother and sister offering a $100,000 surety - even though his co-accused was released on bail in September.
Gold Coast Business Manager for Monstr, Scott Allan Stoneman, was charged in September with running a highly organised and sophisticated luxury car scam that allegedly netted $4.5million.
Stoneman was denied bail at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday, despite his siblings offering $50,000 each on the condition he wouldn't breach bail.
Magistrate Geoff Dunlevy was hesitant and said he believed there was a chance the business owner would try to flee the country,The Gold Coast Bulletin reported.
