Wo­man found with stolen credit card

Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - David Sal­vaire

A 32-year-old Rock­ing­ham wo­man who was found with a stolen credit card dur­ing a police drug raid has been fined.

Su­san­nah Alexan­dria Rich, 32, pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing stolen prop­erty at Rock­ing­ham Mag­is­trate’s Court last week.

The court heard Rich ar­rived at a Hill­man prop­erty on Mon­day, Septem­ber 4, about 1am where police were al­ready ex­e­cut­ing a Mis­use of Drugs Act war­rant.

Rich was found in pos­ses­sion of the card, which had been re­ported stolen in Oc­to­ber last year.

She was also found to be driv­ing an un­li­censed ve­hi­cle on a sus­pended driver’s li­cense.

Rich’s duty lawyer told the court she had found the card on the side of the road and was seek­ing sup­port for mental health is­sues.

In sen­tenc­ing, Mag­is­trate Leanne Atkins said she un­der­stood Rich had not been in court since 2010 and would strug­gle with a com­mu­nity-based or­der.

She was fined $800 in to­tal and or­dered to pay $375 in costs.
