Charges over $5000 theft

A 27-YEAR-OLD Horsham man with family in Warrnambool has been remanded in custody after being charged with stealing about $5000.

Luke Jobson appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court this week and was remanded in custody until September 1 because he has breached his parole.

He has been charged with three counts of theft relating to stealing $4050 at the Whalers Hotel, $450 from Horseland and $450 from a Warrnambool motel in the past couple of months.

Security camera footage at two of the venues led to the man’s arrest. He is alleged to have stolen cash from cash registers.
