Geraldton Guardian - - NEWS - Adam Poulsen

A 25-year-old man await­ing sen­tenc­ing on 20 charges, in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple bur­glar­ies and thefts, re­ceiv­ing stolen goods, and tres­pass­ing, has been fined for sev­eral of­fences but re­mains be­hind bars.

Zeb Henry Sharp was sen­tenced in Ger­ald­ton Mag­is­trate’s Court on Mon­day on charges of car­ry­ing an ar­ti­cle to cause fear, steal­ing, and pos­ses­sion of MDMA and meth.

The “ar­ti­cle” in ques­tion was an axe, the court heard, while the theft took place at Won­thella IGA, where Sharp stole anti-wrin­kle cream worth $28 in Feb­ru­ary.

The pos­ses­sion charges re­lated to three MDMA pills and 0.1g of meth.

Sharp was fined $800 and or­dered to pay $205 in costs, as well as com­pen­sa­tion to the su­per­mar­ket.

He was re­manded in cus­tody at Ca­sua­r­ina Prison to reap­pear in the same court on Jan­uary 29.
