'Court' in the act in Gympie

TWO teenagers who took timber from a building site have been placed on good behaviour bonds for stealing.

Jamie Westner, 17, and Brandon Dodt, 18, took boxing timber from a jobsite at Victory Heights in Gympie on June 17. They said they thought the material had been abandoned and took it to build a deck but a builder at a nearby site saw them take the wood and reported it to police.

Westner, of Mary Valley Road, Amamoor and Dodt, of Julienne Street, Southside, were placed on good behaviour bonds for six months.

POLICE were called to the Caltex 24-hour service station on June 20 when Joshua James Dickes started throwing store items on the floor.

When he refused to pick them up and leave, he was removed by security guards and on the way out, pushed over a display stand.

He told officers his behaviour was a result of being assaulted earlier. The matter was dealt with ex-parte in court on Monday and Dickes, 19, of Noosa Road, Monkland, was fined $150.

TRAVELLING salesman Michael Winston Sanby was on his way to Tin Can Bay when his vehicle was pulled over by police on Cootharaba Road on May 11, because he had not been wearing a seatbelt.

Sanby, 56, was found to be unlicensed and suspended from driving on April 10 after losing all his demerit points.

Sanby, of Inglewood Road, Monkland, said he had been paying people to drive him around but since they had damaged his car he decided to drive himself. He was disqualified from driving for six months and fined $600.
