Vic woman arrested for dumping newspapers

A woman is expected to be charged with “aggravated littering” for allegedly dumping large quantities of newspapers across at least six Melbourne suburbs.

The 54-year-old Narre Warren woman was arrested on Monday after allegedly dumping bundles of newspapers over several weeks in Beaconsfield Upper, Narre Warren North, Pakenham Upper, Cockatoo, Yarra Glen and Yea.

She has been released and is expected to be charged on summons with obtaining financial advantage by deception and three counts of aggravated littering, police say.

I’d love to know more about this story, plenty more.

    I just had a thought on this…..
    They may not have been ‘daily’ newspapers as we initially suspect.
    Perhaps she was being paid to deliver ‘local’ papers, and was dumping them rather than doing the walking.

    That would account for “”obtaining financial advantage by deception””
