Man creates a ruckus in Katoomba Woolworths

A Wentworth Falls man, aged 39, was asked to leave Woolworths in Katoomba after creating a disturbance on March 17.

"The male has made verbal threats and intimidated staff, waving a closed fist in the face of staff while being escorted from the premises," said Blue Mountains Police Detective Acting Inspector Brendan Bayliss.

Police identified the man had strict bail conditions not to drink alcohol or take drugs unless prescribed by a GP.

"Due to the accused being noticeably affected by alcohol, he was arrested for breaching his bail conditions and a search was conducted, locating items believed stolen earlier in the afternoon," Det Acting Insp Bayliss said. He allegedly stole at least two packets of cigarettes.

The man was charged with stalk/intimidate intend fear, goods in personal custody suspected being stolen, affray and contravene prohibition/restriction in AVO.

The man returns to Katoomba Local Court on March 30.
