Woman breaks into Charleville pound to snatch her dogs back
Jade Michelle-Leigh Purvis proved dogs are also a woman’s best friend when she broke the law to get her dogs back from the Charleville pound.
Purvis went to the animal compound behind the Murweh Shire Council depot on Sturt Street sometime between 5pm on February 25 and 7am the next day.
The Charleville Magistrates Court heard on March 9 that Purvis entered through a hole in a nearly 2m tall fence and used a grinder to cut the padlock to the gates leading to the pound.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Caroline Boodnikoff said Purvis took three dogs that belonged to her.
The cops later rocked up to her home and spoke to her partner.
“The defendant told police that she had done it because the informant was a c--t and that last time her dogs were in the compound, they got ticks,” Sergeant Boodnikoff said.
Neither Purvis nor a lawyer attended court for her matter, but she sent through a plea of guilty for wilful damage and entering premises with intent, in writing.
Magistrate Peter Saggers fined her $500 and recorded a criminal conviction.
