Nightclub employee, 22, entangled in a drug knack with promising hockey star insists she has no idea why 100 ecstasy pills were found in her car – as ex-boyfriend claims they were
- The 22-year-old is said to have been found with pills in her car, denied knowing they were there
- Mackenzie Brewer watched as she reportedly went to Matthew Bird’s house
- Reportedly drove off and police allege they found pills in the compartment of her car
- Bird sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison on charges of drug trafficking
- Brewer’s ex-boyfriend – a convicted drug trafficker – said the pills found were his
A glamorous nightclub employee who was reportedly found in her car with 100 ecstasy pills as part of a drug stabbing targeting a young Australian hockey star has denied knowing they were there – as her ex-boyfriend claimed they were his.
Mackenzie Rose Brewer, 22, was covertly watched by police officers in May 2018 when she was reportedly spotted driving to the home of Matthew Bird, then 21, in Bateman in south Perth.
Bird – a former Kookaburras player – was sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison in November of that year for selling a banned drug and possessing a homemade brass knuckle.

Western Australia police allege they saw Brewer run in and then drove away before a team of officers discovered the bag of pills in a compartment of her car.
The drugs are said to have been worth as much as $ 2,500 and the young woman has been accused of owning the drug to sell or supply. The Western Australian reported.
The court was told that the purity of the pills was well below the 43 percent average, between just 10 and 11 percent.
Her ex-boyfriend Oliver Hill – who has already been convicted of drug trafficking – said on Monday that the pills were his in a Western Australia court after she was granted immunity to testify that would impeach him.
“They were mine – I planned to sell them that weekend,” he said.
Hill said his own car was broken, so he used Brewer’s to move drugs, while the accused 22-year-old said many people were allowed to use the vehicle.
She also told police she ran into the house to get her debit card. Her DNA was not found on the bag with the pills, the court heard.

Brewer has no criminal record and the court was told that the police had not found an incriminating text message on her phone, nor any drug paraphernalia on her person.
Bird had made his Kookaburras debut against the Netherlands in his home state of WA in January 2018, before his arrest and guilty plea led to his dismissal from Hockey Australia.
Brewer’s case continues.
