Comments Off on Crime spree over: two weeks, eight victims, seven towns … one guilty plea to 17 offenses, including possession of alleged Methamphetamine, by Jason Golonski, of Orange

A CRIME spree that lasted two weeks and included at least eight victims, spread across seven towns, will reach a conclusion after the culprit pleaded guilty in Orange Local Court to 17 offenses.

Jason Golonski, of Phillip Street in Orange, is in jail after he was refused bail for the crimes which included the theft of five getaway vehicles and nine guns.

Director of Public Prosecutions solicitor Talitha Hennessy said on Thursday she would not seek a plea to the last offence, of supply or knowingly take part in the supply of a prohibited drug, until a test revealed the strength of the alleged methamphetamine he had with him.

“I’m reluctant to proceed until we know the purity of the drug … it could be an indictable amount,” she said.

If the purity is strong, Golonski could face a significantly longer sentence in Orange District Court.

According to police charges the 41-year-old started his crime spree in Bathurst where he stole a Ford Laser on September 6 at about 5 pm.

He also stole a chainsaw from the same victim worth about $600.

In Nashdale, Golonski stole $1200 worth of frozen meat and a chainsaw, and from a separate property he stole nine firearms and ammunition.

He then appeared in Garland, near Lyndhurst a week later and stole a Toyota Kluger that enabled him to reach Orange on September 14 and 15 where he stole a black Holden Commodore utility and a motorbike.

On the same day he appeared in Lyndhurst where he stole $4000 worth of alcohol.

Golonski then made an appearance in Cowra where he stole a boat battery and was in the possession of methamphetamines, or ice.

It was in Cowra police allege he was supplying the drug.

Later on September 19 he broke into a couple’s home, while they were still inside, and stole their Toyota Prado.

In Grenfell on September 21, he broke into a home and stole some fishing rods and a tool box.

He stole and drove all of the vehicles while not having a license.

A fast track order has been issued for the test of the methamphetamines and Golonski will reappear in court in December where he will be committed for sentence in the Orange District Court.
