Dad tries to smash way in


A WARWICK father of four, who tried to smash his way into a bottle shop with a sledgehamm­er, has paid the price in court for his crime.

Colin Thomas Bonner targeted Liquor Legends Warwick late in the evening of August 13, trying to force entry through the front windows.

Warwick Magistrate­s Court heard the 55-year-old repeatedly swung his sledgehamm­er into the glass, but was ultimately unsuccessf­ul in smashing through into the business.

He gave up and left, but not before causing $2160 in damage. Bonner pleaded guilty to one count of attempt to enter a premises and commit an indictable offence. He was fined $750 and ordered to pay the full amount of restitutio­n.
