11 fines but no con­vic­tion

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A PROSER­PINE man was not con­victed on any of the 11 charges put be­fore the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court on Mon­day but was fined a to­tal of $2420.

Jar­ryd Craig Preb­ble was be­fore the court fac­ing three counts of steal­ing, wil­ful dam­age, four counts of breach­ing bail con­di­tions, tres­pass­ing and pos­sess­ing drug-re­lated uten­sils or pipes.

On Au­gust 19 at 9.15pm, Preb­ble en­tered a fit­ness venue on Chap­man Street in Proser­pine via a se­cu­rity scan sys­tem.

A mem­ber of the gym left her purse and mo­bile phone on a ta­ble with her child while she as­sisted her part­ner who was clean­ing the gym.

Preb­ble took the items and was ar­rested the fol­low­ing day.

In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, Preb­ble stole $325 from a reg­is­ter at the Metropole Ho­tel at 8.30pm on Au­gust 17, and re­turned the fol­low­ing day tak­ing a cask of vodka from the ho­tel’s drive-through ser­vice.

On Au­gust 21, Preb­ble breached bail by en­ter­ing the Proser­pine town area. He was ar­rested by po­lice in front of the Prince of Wales Ho­tel at 12.20pm.

On Au­gust 22, he was caught tres­pass­ing at the Proser­pine Mill.

The 20-year-old was also charged with pos­ses­sion of a wa­ter pipe and another breach of bail.

On Septem­ber 28 at 8.59pm, Preb­ble was charged with wil­ful dam­age af­ter punch­ing the side of a bus in Can­non­vale.

Mag­is­trate Haydn St­jern­qvist said Preb­ble needed “a mon­u­men­tal shift in your at­ti­tude” but took into ac­count his age and ap­pli­ca­tion to the Aus­tralian De­fence Force when hand­ing down the sen­tence.

Preb­ble was also or­dered to pay a to­tal of $481.71 in resti­tution for the of­fences.
