Cloth­ing theft

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A 27-YEAR-OLD French tourist has been charged with steal­ing af­ter tak­ing a num­ber of items of cloth­ing from the Bil­l­abong store at Port of Air­lie. Po­lice were called to the store at 3pm on March 15 where the man­ager was able to pro­vide a pre­lim­i­nary de­scrip­tion of the man. A sub­se­quent search of the area took place but the man could not be found. Mean­while, the store man­ager found a bag con­tain­ing the man’s pass­port that he had left be­hind. With the as­sis­tance of the pass­port pho­to­graph, po­lice were able to track the man down and ar­rest him as he was at­tempt­ing to board a bus head­ing south.
