Man fined after breaking into house, falling asleep on bed

A GLADSTONE man was so drunk, he couldn't remember breaking into a Tannum Sands House and falling asleep in one of the bedrooms.

At 7.35am on May 24, police were called to a residence on Hampton Dr in Tannum Sands about a trespasser.

Tommy David Marsh, 28, told police he could not recall how he got there and that he did not know the owners of the house.

Marsh said he had been at a party the night before and he thought he left with a group of people.

He appeared in Gladstone Magistrates court on Tuesday, pleading guilty to one charge of trespass.

Magistrate Damien Dwyer asked Marsh how he knew where the bed was, if he didn't know the owners of the house.

Marsh said he was so drunk, he didn't even remember that night.

Magistrate Dwyer said it was clear Marsh had no malicious intent, but he needed to be careful about how much he drank in the future.

Marsh was fined $500 and placed on a good behaviour bond with no conviction recorded.
