The Barrier Miner (Broken Hill) published the following article on Wednesday, 7th January, 1953.
Sydney-Early on Christmas morning an intruder entered the kitchen of the Dame Eadith Walker Hospital, Concord.
The intruder put into a hospital patients’ Christmas sack: a dressed turkey, a dressed fowl, two dressed rabbits, a leg of mutton, thirty-two mutton chops, a cabbage, five blankets and two tea-towels.
Soon afterwards Constable Wilson of the Vice Squad saw the intruder, David Robert Hunter, carrying a large sack in Concord Road, and stopped him.
In Burwood Court, Mr McElroy, S.M. fined Hunter 25 pounds for having stolen the dinner.
Hunter , a motor driver of Campbell Street, Newtown, said he was drunk, and didn’t mean to steal.
