An unemployed 35-year-old man who breached a trespass order twice on successive days and stole a sweatshirt off a clothesline at the same address, was fined a total of $600.
But the interesting part of the case was his address.
He’s listed as “No fixed abode, Christchurch Airport”.
What’s going on out there?
Are some of the city’s homeless sneaking in to the terminal to spend the night dossed down among the backpackers in transit, perhaps?
