Man stole electrical supplies from office to pay for alcohol

WHEN Alexander Graham was drinking with a buddy but ran out of alcohol and money on Monday, he turned to stealing and was sentenced to prison in Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday.

Graham pleaded guilty to one count of entering a premises with intent to commit an indictable offence after he took electrical supplies from a Victoria Pde real estate office at 5pm.

The court heard the 28-year-old was drinking with a friend and taking turns to shout rounds.

Defence lawyer Shayne Studdert told the court Graham ran out of money and alcohol and intended to sell the stolen goods.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Kathryn Stafford told the court police later caught up with Graham with a laptop, charger and camera in his backpack.

Magistrate Michael O'Driscoll sentenced Graham to five months in prison with parole eligibility immediately and to 40 hours' community service.
