Crime Watch: A penis pill pilferer, a Subway sandwich situation and a flaked out fiend. Who knew the lower north shore could be this interesting?!
A SUBWAY SANDWICH WORKER IS RECOVERING, AFTER A ‘HANGRY’ CUSTOMER HAD AN EPIC MELTDOWN AT THE NORTH SYDNEY STORE OVER THE WEEKEND - AND IT HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH A FAILED FOOTLONG ORDER! WE HAVE ALL THE LATEST LOCAL CRIME NEWS THANKS TO NORTH SHORE POLICE AREA COMMAND.
A Subway staff member is recovering after a young customer lost the plot, in a bizarre meltdown that had nothing to do with a failed foot-long order.
Police were called to the popular North Sydney franchise at 9:30pm last Friday, after a ‘sandwich artist’ was allegedly assaulted by a boozed-up female who had entered the store.
Thinking he was about to take an order, the employee was understandably confused when it wasn’t a meatball marinara sub the woman wanted, but a phone charger.
It is alleged the intoxicated 21-year-old then assaulted the Subway worker, before leaving the scene with another staff members phone.
A search for the woman ended when Police found her some hours later, singing and dancing with a busker in Broadway.
She has been charged with trespassing, stealing and assault and is due to appear in Court on October 16.
Locals are warned to be on the lookout for a penis pill pilferer, who stole 20 packets of a drug described as a Viagra alternative.
Hard facts from local Police confirm the sex enhancement pills were sent from a Chatswood pharmacy to a medical practise in Darlinghurst via courier last month.
When no Doctor was available at the time of delivery, the tablets were returned to a distribution centre, where it was noticed the box containing the medication had been tampered with – and the drugs removed.
Police would like to speak with anyone who has information on the randy robber - and say that stiff penalties apply for anyone involved in theft.
There was no fairy tale ending for a thief we’ll call ‘Goldilocks’, who broke into a North Sydney child-care facility last week - and promptly fell asleep on the job.
Shocked staff discovered the non-compos man, still punching out the zeds, inside a ransacked office Thursday (Aug 29) at 7:00am.
It’s alleged the flaked-out fiend stole a number of items, including iPads, children’s school bags, medicine and sound equipment, placing them outside a door - before nodding off.
Police say the 35-year-old was in such a deep sleep that he needed to be woken up, before they could arrest him. He is due to appear at Manly Court on September 12.
Police remind residents to be vigilant with home security after jewellery and cash was stolen from a house on Mandolong Road.

Jewellery was also stolen from a home in Raglan Street on Friday (Aug 30) with the suspected point of entry also being the Master Bedroom.

Several local businesses have fallen victim to an internet banking scam, after fraudsters posing as clients and creditors advised of bank account changes via email.

Businesses are urged to use good internet security and exercise caution when paying funds, especially if bank account details of creditors change.
