Sleeping man's DNA leads to charges after mates rob Rocky business
AS HIS "mates" flogged off items from a Rocky business, Kevin Ellis Egretz sat in the passenger's seat "too drunk to move".
On July 27, 2016, Egretz' DNA was found in the vehicle - used to drive through a locked gate and enter the premise - which led to his arrest.
His accomplices had stolen a number of tools, jerry cans and other items from True Blue Aussie Turf in Nerimbera.
Over 12 months since the crimes, Egretz pleaded guilty to one count of entering a premise at the Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday. The court heard he was on probation and was not suitable for further community-based orders.
Duty lawyer Rowan King told the court his client had no intention of partaking in the activities.
Egretz was fined $500 and recorded a conviction.
Pleased, Egretz vowed to not be back before the courts. "You won't see me back here. I had a wake up call the last time, this is another," he said.
