Thieves on good behaviour bond

STEALING food from a fridge in the annex of a caravan was not part of the plan but Matthew Hughes, 18, admitted he did it and was charged with trespassing.

Hughes, of Hindley Avenue, Maroochydore, told the court he and his friends walked through Rainbow Beach Holiday Village on July 26 for a totally different purpose – looking for girls and a party – but saw the fridge and took the food.

Gympie Magistrates Court heard Hughes was also involved in a disturbance at Noosaville on August 22 when he and his friends were drinking and using offensive language loudly in front of families.

He was placed on a bond to be of good behaviour for six months and ordered to do community service.
