Scary in­va­sion

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN who re­peat­edly en­tered Proser­pine homes with­out per­mis­sion has been sen­tenced in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court.

Ray­mond Glen Halls, 54, was said to have en­tered three dif­fer­ent Proser­pine ad­dresses in a two-week pe­riod ear­lier this year.

On the first oc­ca­sion on April 29 about 1.30pm, he en­tered a woman’s home and was found stand­ing in her liv­ing room with a gui­tar and back­pack. Not know­ing who he was, she re­peat­edly asked him to leave and he soon did.

On May 2 about 3.30pm, he was seen in the front yard of an­other woman’s house.

The fi­nal in­ci­dent hap­pened on May 7 when a woman was wo­ken up about 2am in her home to the sounds of a man yelling. She thought the sound was com­ing from un­der­neath her house and af­ter call­ing police that is where they found him.

Halls told the court he didn’t re­mem­ber the in­ci­dents. He ap­peared in court with no shoes af­ter be­ing taken into cus­tody on Satur­day.

Plead­ing guilty to all charges, in­clud­ing miss­ing a pre­vi­ous court date, Halls was con­victed and fined $1000.
