Post office rammed

By Mel Dee

A man has had three months added to his jail sentence for ramming a post office with a stolen car in a meth-fuelled spree.

Colin Frederick Kelly appeared at the Armadale Magistrates Court on Tuesday via video link from Casuarina Prison.

He is currently serving a prison sentence for other matters.

On April 12 last year, the 28-year-old stole a car from Thornlie before ramming it through the glass door of an Australia Post store.

He then stole various items from the post office before taking the car on a joy ride and attempting to destroy it.

Police discovered the damaged vehicle in Warnbro the next day.

Ahead of his sentencing, his lawyer requested the four charges against him be dealt with concurrently with his existing term of imprisonment – meaning no extra time would be added to his stay in jail.

His lawyer said that Mr Kelly has “limited recollection of the offences” because he was in a “cycle of heavy use of methylamphetamines” at the time. She reasoned that because of his blurred relationship with reality and time due to the heavy drug use, all of the offences committed should be looked at “in totality”.

Magistrate Kevin Tavener said it was quite a “serious series of actions” and he was “not persuaded” it needed to be dealt with concurrently.

He instead added three more months on to Colin Kelly’s existing sentence.

Police are seeking this arsonist.
