‘BENDER’ LEADS TO FINE
A 46-year- old father of four was charged after he stole $1600 from the Barron Falls Hotel on September 2. The court heard Danny-Dragon Antoni Pivac was at the hotel playing on the pokies when he opened the till near the bar and stole money. During their regular nightly audit, staff realised the money was missing from the till and the CCTV footage revealed Pivac. Pivac’s lawyers Scott Anderson said Pivac was extremely sorry for and would like to go to the hotel to apologise for his actions but this was a result of a “bender” and the situation got out of hand. He was sentenced to 12 months probation and was order to pay the $1600.
