Highgate Hill

Change for alleged thieves

A Highgate Hill man and his brother are amongst a gang of 4 who have been accused of stealing Brisbane parking meter money…..and it’s not just 20 cents, it’s reported to be more like $800,000. They’ve allegedly skimmed an average of $8 a week off each of the 1,900 parking meters across Brisbane since January 2007. They’ve been granted bail on the condition they don’t jump on the next flight out of here, but with all of that loose change I imagine you’ll find them at the pokies, pinball and eating a lot of vending machine junk food till their next trial date in April.
