Woman given bracelet on street

A 26-year-old Cowra woman has been given a 12-month conditional release order.

Nancy Christine Gail King of Fitzroy Avenue was before the court charged with goods in her personal custody suspected of being stolen.

According to police facts around 3.55am on October 5, 2019 King came to the attention of police due to her presence near a break and enter in Amaroo Street.

King was arrested and searched. During the search a gold coloured chain bracelet with cubic zirconias was located in her shirt's front top pocket in a small mesh bag.

During an interview with police, King said she had been given the bracelet by a man called "Adam".

She told police he had walked past her in the street, saw she was wearing a bracelet and asked if she would like another one.

She said "Adam" had told her that a woman called "Leanne from Parkes" had given the bracelet to him and there was a matching necklace he had given to someone else.

King's solicitor told the court his client had been out of trouble since 2015 after addressing her alcohol addiction in rehab and a relapse had triggered this offending.

During sentencing King appeared annoyed, constantly getting up and pacing behind her solicitor.

Magistrate Michael O'Brien made it a condition of King's order that she provide particulars for her future identification to police. He also ordered that the bracelet be returned to the owner when they were identified.
