Christopher Robert Bekkers to return to court on Monday, October 14

Christopher Robert Bekkers returned to court over his alleged involvement in a police pursuit from last year.

Represented by defence lawyer Michael Joubert, Mr Bekkers faced Bunbury Magistrates Court on Friday, August 23, via video link from Bunbury Regional Prison.

Police allege the accused was driving a Holden Commodore on Brittain Road at 2.45pm on April 1, 2018.

He was allegedly driving the vehicle and attempted to cross over the boom gates on Robertson Drive, before hitting a train.

After apprehending Mr Bekkers, police searched the car and found items believed to have been stolen.

He was charged with being a driver and failing to ensure each victim involved in an incident had received assistance, failing to stop immediately, driving while impaired by drugs, driving with a suspended licence, driving without ever holding a licence, possessing methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and stolen/unlawfully obtained property, and stealing a motor vehicle.

He was also hit with two counts of driving and failing to comply with a direction to stop, and reckless driving to escape pursuit by police.

In court last week, Mr Bekkers pleaded not guilty to four of the charges and guilty to three others.

Magistrate David Maclean described the matters as "serious", adding the accused would likely receive an immediate prison term.

The matters were remanded to Monday, October 14.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Darren Grigson told the court Mr Bekkers was arrested in East Bunbury on November 24, 2018. Officers uncovered 0.05 grams of methamphetamine and a glass pipe.

Mr Maclean handed down a $50 fine, court costs, and an order for the drugs and paraphernalia to be destroyed.
