Grandmother dobs in thieving grandson

A GRANDMOTHER dobbed her grandson into police for stealing $140 from her savings account in order to teach him a lesson.

Ipswich Magistrates Court heard the 19-year-old man stole the grandma's debit card from her purse on November 11 last year so he could go to the pub and purchase cigarettes and alcohol and play pool.

The teenager withdrew $140 in four separate transactions and attempted to use the debit card at a newsagent the following day before suspicious staff took the card off him.

He went home and confessed what he had done, and to teach him a lesson, the grandma reported him to police.

When questioned, the teenager, who cannot be named, was co-operative and admitted to what he had done.

The court heard the teen had stolen the card to enjoy some time at the pub with his then-girlfriend.

The teen pleaded guilty to fraud and stealing and was released on a $500, six-month good behaviour bond.
