Alleged NSW shoplifter among those punished for refusing to wear masks in NSW

Two New South Wales residents are now $200 poorer for refusing to wear masks despite repeated warnings, while another man is facing charges.

The charged man was stopped by police who allegedly saw him steal an energy drink from a grocery store in Strathfield, in Sydney’s west, on Monday.

He refused to correctly put on his mask while being spoken to by officers.

Police allege he became aggressive while being arrested and verbally threatened officers.

He was taken to Burwood police station and charged with failing to wear a mask, shoplifting, resisting arrest and intimidating police.

Also on Monday, a 35-year-old man was found not wearing a mask at Seven Hills train station.

He was warned a “number of times” to wear a mask, police said.
