Richmond’s Sydney Stack freed on bail after alleged COVID-19 breach

Troubled Richmond star Sydney Stack has been granted bail after spending three weeks in a Western Australian jail over an alleged COVID-19 breach.

The 20-year-old spent Christmas behind bars after he was arrested on December 21.

Stack was charged with failing to comply with a direction after allegedly being found out on the town in Northbridge during his compulsory self-isolation period, having entered WA from Victoria on a flight that stopped over in South Australia.

He has now been released on strict bail conditions.

Stack is required to report to police twice a week and he must live at his aunty’s house in Western Australia or risk returning to a prison cell.

“He’ll be very pleased. It’s been pretty hard, I haven’t been able to get much communications with him in the last couple of days,” manager Paul Peos said.

“But we’ll organise to get him out and I’ll have a chat to him then.”

Stack was granted approval to enter WA on compassionate grounds on December 10 for his grandfather’s funeral.

He was issued with a direction to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days at a nominated address in Northam, about 97km from Perth.

But he was allegedly found by police days later at 1.10am on a Saturday in the party district of Northbridge.

It was also alleged he had been staying at a residence in Belmont and not at his nominated quarantine address.
