According to The Advertiser, prosecutors opposed Broikos’ release on bail, saying he could continue reoffending “wholly undetected.”

The court was told Broikos was also one of eight people allegedly involved in transporting 10kg of methamphetamine from NSW to SA.

Magistrate John Wells granted Broikos home-detention bail “with a great amount of hesitation,” setting a condition that Broikos could not contact his co-accused.

His parents, who were “shocked” by the allegations against their son, were ordered to put up a $50,000 cash surety.

Prosecutors sought a Supreme Court bail review and Broikos was remanded in custody until Thursday.
