Jason Lee Rickard
The robbery occurred on 29 August 2008. Mr Rickard and his co-offenders (who have not been apprehended) were in the New World car park at Papakura. Mr Rickard was identified by a witness to whom he spoke twice near the supermarket entrance immediately before M, a 63 year old woman, was robbed. The witness noticed that he was apparently under the influence of alcohol or drugs M was pushed from behind causing her to fall on to the car. Her purse was taken including cash of $230, credit cards, driver’s licence and identification cards. Mr Rickard admits to being one of the four offenders who participated in the robbery but denies that he was the principal party who assaulted the complainant.
 The first theft occurred the following afternoon, on 30 August 2008. Mr Rickard and a co-offender were in a vehicle in the Southgate shopping centre in Takanini. Mr Rickard left the vehicle and then physically grabbed a handbag from J, a woman standing nearby. In her handbag were cash of $35 and credit cards. Mr Rickard and his co-offender fled. Mr Rickard was originally and correctly charged with robbery for this offending but the police later substituted a charge of theft following Mr Rickard’s participation in a restorative justice programme with the victim.
 Mr Rickard was able to use J’s credit card in the succeeding hour to purchase alcohol to a total value of about $160. He failed on five other occasions in his attempts to use her cards to purchase other property.
 The second theft occurred in the evening on 31 August 2008. Mr Rickard parked his vehicle in the New World car park in Papakura alongside another vehicle. He then left his vehicle and opened the front door of the other vehicle, removing a handbag. He stole a credit card, cheque book and cash to a total value of $700.
