Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Seven tourists in Ex­mouth were is­sued with in­fringe­ments for shoplift­ing over two days last week.

Ex­mouth po­lice say the peo­ple, who were all over­seas tourists stay­ing in town, took small items from a range of dif­fer­ent shops, in­clud­ing su­per­mar­kets and news agen­cies.

They were stopped and ap­pre­hended by in­di­vid­ual shop own­ers be­fore of­fi­cers at­tended and is­sued them with in­fringe­ment no­tices for steal­ing, which carry fines of $500 each. The cases are be­lieved to be un­re­lated. Ex­mouth po­lice First Class Con­sta­ble Dawn Hor­gan said theft at lo­cal shops was not in­fre­quent, though they sus­pected some cases were not re­ported to po­lice.
