Drunk teen steals pies from servo
AN 18-YEAR-OLD woman was lucky to escape a criminal conviction in the Maryborough Magistrates Court after pleading guilty to two charges of shoplifting.
Genevieve Thyra Margret Rainbow was caught on camera pocketing hot pies, chips and drinks on two separate occasions at a Maryborough service station on October 18 and 19.
The court heard that on the second occasion when she was asked by the shop attendant whether she was going to pay for the items, she threw an opened packet of chips on the counter and walked out.
Defence barrister Sarah Laikind said Rainbow, unemployed, was intoxicated at the time of the offending.
Magistrate John Smith fined her $350 for the first charge and $400 for the second and ordered she pay $19 compensation.
