A KYABRAM man who smashed the front window of the local St Vincent de Paul store has been asked to be of good behaviour for six months.

Sean O’Hallaran appeared in Echuca Magistrates Court on Tuesday to plead guilty to willful damage and possession of cannabis and methylamphetamine.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Alan Walker said O’Hallaran attended the St Vincent de Paul store on Elm St Kyabram on November 24, 2016.

‘‘He had requested vouchers and when staff told him they could only give him groceries he begun banging on the doors,’’ he said.

‘‘He was enraged and when staff handed him the groceries he banged them against the store window causing it to smash.

‘‘When police caught up with him they also found cannabis and methylamphetamine on him.’’

Magistrate Sarah Leighfield said she had been presented with a lot of information from the defence lawyers.

‘‘You are a lot more stable than you were 12 months ago and have improved a lot,’’ she said.

Ms Leighfield sentenced O’Hallaran to a six month adjourned undertaking without conviction.
