Stolen couch not so comfy
Hodges appeared in the Maryborough Magistrates Court this week charged with stealing.
The court heard that Hodges saw the couch in a unit at Barcaldine and believed the property had been abandoned.
By the time police were made aware of the theft, the timber legs of the couch had been removed.
Hodges and his partner were both charged with stealing.
They have since moved to Maryborough.
Hodges pleaded guilty and was fined $400 and ordered to pay restitution of $78.50 to the owner of the couch
