Woman’s 50c water theft earns $50 fine

A ROCKHAMPTON woman yesterday bought herself what could be the most expensive bottle of water in the region.

The bottle was worth 50c, but the woman earned herself a $50 fine after she stole it on January 3 from Foodworks in George St, Rockhampton.

The woman, who The Morning Bulletin chose not to name, pleaded guilty in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday to one count of unauthorised dealing with shop goods.

She was fined $50 and a conviction was not recorded.
