The Queensland bricklayer with more than $590 million in the bank

  • A tradie pulled over by police in a luxury sports car has more than $590 million in the bank but isn’t at liberty to say how he got it, a Brisbane court has heard.

Phillip Johnathan Harrison was granted bail in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Saturday, a day after police pulled him over in an Audi sports car and found quantities of ice, Viagra and ecstasy.

The court heard the bricklayer and carpenter told officers he was worth $12 billion and later explained to his lawyer he’d been given the car by the government.
