Woman smashes windows, car in early morning rampage

A TOOWOOMBA woman alleged to have launched an enraged attack on a James St unit early Tuesday morning was released on bail despite strong objections.

Tellira Ada Joan Duncan, 23, appeared in custody in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court today on two counts of wilful damage and one of going armed so as to cause fear after being arrested earlier that morning.

Duncan is alleged to have damaged windows of a James St unit and the window and tail light of a car at the same address while armed with an item about which there was some dispute.

According to part of a bail objection Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck read aloud in court while questioning Duncan, the alleged offender had been armed with a tyre iron and knife.

However Ms Duncan, from the dock, said she had a hammer at the time and had been searching for her partner with whom she lived at the address.

Duncan had initially indicated to the court she wanted to plead guilty to the charges but the matter was adjourned until a restitution figure could be determined by police.

To that end Mr Schemioneck released Duncan on bail with strict conditions and ordered the matter be adjourned to the same court on July 8.
