Glue Abuse in Australia

From the Fraser Coast Chronicle in Australia:

A 23 year-old has pleaded guilty to stealing glue from a local supermarket. On March 1 at 4:20 pm he stole a tube of glue and plastic bags from another area of the store. Two hours later he stole two more tubes of glue and additional plastic bags. He was caught on camera in both cases.

Defence barristers note that he has been addicted to inhalants since he was 8 years-old which has resulted in brain damage. Prosecutors note he has a “substantial criminal history and was on parole at the time he committed the stealing offences.” The judge fined the man $800.
