Osborne to fight shoplifting charge

Parramatta CEO Paul Osborne will fight a shoplifting notice after walking out of a Woolworths store without paying.

Osborne, a former police officer, has been issued with a $300 infringement notice after scanning items at a self-service checkout at the Woolworths store in Dural, north-western Sydney, before leaving without entering his card.

CCTV footage caught him leaving with the 11 items worth a total of $49.18.

Osborne says he had a lot on his mind and simply forgot to pay.

"This is a store I visit three times every week," Osborne told News Ltd.

"I simply went in to buy some dinner for my kids and got them a DVD too.

"A couple of weeks later some police came to my door because of shoplifting.

"Obviously I was embarrassed and went straight to the shop to pay up."

Osborne has asked the police commissioner to use his powers to withdraw the notice and says if that is unsuccessful he will fight it in court.
