Man, 19, stole TV while he was performing community service

A MAN who stole a TV from the organisation where he was performing community service has been fined.

Thomas Cahill, 19, pleaded guilty in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The court heard he stole the TV from the Hervey Bay Community Recycling Group, while he was supposed to be doing community service to pay off other fines.

The court was told Cahill believed that if the TV was going to be trashed anyway, there was no reason he couldn't take it home for free.

Magistrate Graeme Tatnell fined him $400, but did not record a conviction.
