Faeces Filled Balloons Thrown At Tyneside Club
A man from South Shields has been convicted of throwing balloons full of excrement at a club used by ex-servicemen and women.
49 year old Charles McGeary, repeated his foul activities on a number of occasions after reportedly being barred from drinking at the Royal British Legion in South Shields.
The Crown Prosecution Service said he 'carried out a campaign of filling jars and balloons with excrement, urine and rotten food''
They said from November to January he threw the missiles through the shutters, which ``exploded on impact'' and covered the carpet, walls and curtains.
Bob Wilson, secretary at the social club, said former servicemen and women would regularly come to the premises.
He said "I don't even want to think about how he got this excrement into the balloons.''
McGeary was given a 12-month probation order and electronically tagged with an attached curfew at South Tyneside Magistrates' Court.
He also had to pay the club £1,000 in compensation.
