Siahn Cynthia Curran: Estate agent Ray White, 31, is jailed for stashing meth – sparking furious response from mother
A former real estate agent was jailed for 15 months for possessing methamphetamine, and her mother stormed out of court as the sentence was read out.
Siahn Cynthia Curran appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday, three years after she was fired from her dream job at Ray White following a previous run-in with the law.
The 31-year-old was already on probation for drug supply when police approached him at the Prince Consort Hotel in Fortitude Valley last January.
She had in her possession 10 grams of methamphetamine intended for her personal use, Courier mail reported.
Curran pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a Schedule 1 drug in a quantity equal to or greater than Schedule 3 but less than Schedule 4.

“My client had a good upbringing, but unfortunately she had some addiction issues,” said her attorney Trent Playford.
“She started out using ecstasy while partying, which eventually led to a more serious addiction, in this case to methamphetamine and GHB.”
Curran, who is originally from Melbourne but moved to Queensland in 2017, spent five years working in real estate.
But her life took a turn for the worse in 2020 when she split from her long-term partner and embarked on a 12-day drug addiction that saw her arrested three times and fired from her job at Ray White.
In August 2020, Curran pleaded guilty to five charges and was sentenced to 14 months of probation with a conviction recorded and disqualified from driving for three and a half years.
At the time, Magistrate Jennifer Batts said Curran was lucky not to have seriously injured anyone by driving erratically and taking drugs.
Three years later, Mr Playford told the court she was in rehab, had “great potential and was trying to beat her addiction and sincerely trying, she had some setbacks which clearly emerge from his recidivism”.
Her lawyer said Curran (pictured) “had a good upbringing, but unfortunately she had addiction issues”.

The barrister asked the court not to jail his client, but magistrate Judith Daley pointed out that Curran had been found in possession of a “significant” quantity of methamphetamine.
“You have returned to rehabilitation but I am not convinced that you will remain there after today’s sentencing because your rehabilitation journey has been very mixed,” she said.
Curran will be eligible for parole on February 25.
