Prison warning for train pest

A SERIAL train pest with almost 40 criminal convictions for evading fares has been warned his next stop was jail if he kept offending.

Ipswich Magistrates Court heard Glen Aaron Navie used to be employed with QR and was allowed to travel for free then, but since he finished that job in 2007 he has kept riding the trains without paying.

The court heard the 27-year-old has notched up 39 fare evade convictions since 2003.

His latest two offences occurred on the Ipswich line outbound at Redbank on September 21, and the Ipswich line inbound on October 13.

The court heard each time Navie told police he had "no money" to pay for the tickets.

He was sentenced to 14 days prison, wholly suspended for six months.
