Made to pay for big night

BLOOMSBURY resident Codey Paul Stevenson was fined $900 and ordered to pay $220 restitution after a wild night out in Proserpine where he stole cash, a debit card and other items from two unlocked cars.

Mr Stevenson admitted to having no real recollection of the events after consuming two casks of wine on the night of April 3 when the offences took place on Mill Street, Proserpine.

The 19-year-old was also charged with possession of utensils that had been used for drugs after police searched his house on August 9.

He accepted the version of events put forward by the police and Magistrate Ron Muirhead took into account the fact that he was intoxicated at the time and that all crimes took place in one location on one night.

No conviction was recorded.
