A string of of­fences

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - NEWS -

A De­niliquin woman was in cus­tody yes­ter­day on a string of tres­pass­ing and break and en­ter of­fences from Mon­day and Tues­day this week.

As the PAS­TORAL TIMES went to print, she was still be­fore the courts on 11 sep­a­rate charges.

Five re­late to in­ci­dents this week, and the rest were from of­fences oc­cur­ring through­out Novem­ber for which she was to ap­pear in court at a later date.

Po­lice said the woman was al­ready on strict con­di­tional bail re­lat­ing to an in­ci­dent on Novem­ber 8, af­ter which was ar­rested for al­leged tres­pass­ing, ag­gra­vated break and en­ter with in­tent to steal, deal­ing with prop­erty that was the pro­ceeds or crime and goods in cus­tody.

Other charges from Novem­ber in­clude a break en­ter and steal from Novem­ber 2 and tres­pass­ing on Novem­ber 28.

This week, de­scrip­tions of the woman were pro­vided to po­lice by three dif­fer­ent peo­ple, two of whom told po­lice the woman was al­legedly found in­side their home.

Po­lice are also still in­ves­ti­gat­ing whether the theft of a wal­let from a staff mem­ber’s hand­bag at a Ge­orge St busi­ness in De­niliquin on De­cem­ber 4 is linked.

On De­cem­ber 3, the oc­cu­pant of a Rus­sell St home in west De­niliquin heard the rear door at the home be­ing opened about 9.15am. The male oc­cu­pant told po­lice that on in­ves­ti­ga­tion he found a woman stand­ing in the laun­dry.

Po­lice said the woman was asked to leave, and even­tu­ally com­plied.

The fol­low­ing day, po­lice were called just af­ter 8am when the oc­cu­pant of a Davidson St home claims to have seen the same woman in her rear yard.

The oc­cu­pant said she was wo­ken a short time ear­lier by knock­ing on glass and then the sound of some­one try­ing to turn the han­dle on the back door, which was locked.

Later the same morn­ing, about 9.30am, the same woman was al­legedly found in the hall­way of a Wood St home in west De­niliquin by the oc­cu­pant.

She left when in­structed to do so, and the oc­cu­pant later found a bot­tle con­tain­ing $1 and $2 coins miss­ing, as well as a quan­tity of $5 notes.

As a re­sult of this week’s al­leged of­fences, the woman has been charged with an­other three counts of tres­pass­ing, break and en­ter with in­tent to steal and break, en­ter and steal.
