Fine for phar­macy theft

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Times News -

A 21-year-old man has been fined for steal­ing make-up bags from Phar­macy 777.

Joshua Paul Alexan­drou pleaded guilty to one charge of steal­ing at the Mar­garet River Mag­is­trate’s Court on Mon­day.

At 1pm on De­cem­ber 31, Alexan­drou en­tered the phar­macy and put three cos­metic bags in­side a big­ger bag and left the store with­out pay­ing.

Staff re­viewed CCTV footage and re­ported the in­ci­dent to po­lice.

The hair­dress­ing ap­pren­tice said he had no ex­cuse for com­mit­ting the of­fence.

“I don’t re­ally know why I did it,” he told Mag­is­trate Brian Ma­hon this week. “I’m re­ally em­bar­rassed.” He was fined $400, and charged $124.74 in resti­tu­tion and $190.85 in court costs.
