Woman charged with underwear theft
A Cannons Creek woman appeared in court last Tuesday charged with stealing 12 pairs of men’s knickers from The Warehouse in Porirua.
The court heard that Moana Manuel, 33, dropped the undies in her bag before a staff member spotted her trying to leave the store.
The men’s boxers had a total value of $88. Manuel pleaded not guilty. Her case was remanded until June 4.
Judge John Walker gave Manuel bail, on condition she stayed away from the Porirua Warehouse.
