2 men break into Enzo’s in search of alcohol

TWO men who allegedly broke into Enzo's on the Beach on the Esplanade have been sentenced to community service after Magistrate Graeme Tatnell slammed them for their actions.

"The community and business owners are sick and tired of people breaking into their premises," Mr Tatnell said.

"They are trying to make a living and they don't need people like you breaking into their premises."

Edward Robert Bonner, 28, and Daniel Benjamin Saunders, 24 both pleaded guilty in separate sentencing hearings in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court to breaking in to the popular cafe.

The court heard the pair had pulled wooden palings from the side of the cafe, gaining entry to the manager's office on November 25.

Bonner was found by police hiding in a corner of the cafe while Saunders was outside and never entered the premises. Bonner told police he had entered the cafe in search of more alcohol.

Bonner was sentenced to 100 hours community service while Saunders was sentenced to 80 hours community service.
