Breast and Less: Woman attempts to steal bra

AMANDA Jane Wood went in to the fitting room at Gladstone's Best and Less with two bras in her hands.

She came out of the fitting room leaving just one, and walked out of the shop.

The Gladstone Magistrates Court heard how police located Wood a few minutes later in the Stockland Mall and was found to be wearing the second bra over top of the one she had been wearing when she entered the shop.

Police prosecutor Shane Raison told the court she had told police she was struggling financially and offered that as the reason for the theft.

She pleaded guilty to the charge and Magistrate Jeffrey Clarke placed her on a three-month good behaviour bond and entered no conviction against her.

"If you are short, you don't turn to dishonest acts," he told Wood.
