FLOSS ADAMSDITCH THE FAT FOR SOME FAT TUNA INSTEAD Intruder waves a white flag NORTHERN Territory police arrested a 15-year-old boy after a break-in on Sunday at the Karama shops. NT Watch Commander Senior Sergeant Kaye Pemberton said police were called to a report of a break-in at a Thai massage parlour at Karama shops about 1.30am on Sunday. Officers from the general duty dog operations command were deployed to the shops and found a smashed window at the parlour. An intruder was identified and refused a request by officers to leave the massage parlour before discharging a fire-extinguisher at the premises and also picking up a bat. After a short stand-off with police, the alleged intruder used his white shirt to wave through the door to signal his surrender to police. The youth has been charged with unlawful entry to a property. The alleged break-in follows an incident last week in Karama in which three people were charged after an alleged assault. A 19 and 20-year-old were charged with acts intended to cause serious harm. A 46-year-old has been charged with attempted murder. Punter says hacker cost him $33,000 A PUNTER who claimed a hacker may have cashed out his $26,000 bet on a soccer match without his knowledge has walked away from an NT Racing Commission hearing empty-handed. In a decision handed down recently, the commission determined there was no evidence to suggest there was a technical glitch, and deemed the man responsible for all activity on his account, even in the unsupported event that his account was hacked. The commission has formed the view that there is no evidence of a technical issue which would have caused unauthorised cash out of the complainants bet and accordingly, the cash-out facility must have been initiated by a person logged into the complainants account at the time, the report found. The complainant is responsible for all activity on his account including any inadvertent activity in accordance with Bet365s terms and conditions, it said. The commission heard the man stood to win an additional $33,391 on his bet if five goals or more were scored in a soccer match between Sport Boys and Sporting Cristal in the top flight Peruvian league on August 19, 2020. The man placed the $26,000 bet in the 67th minute of the 90-minute match, when the score was 1-3. In the 87th minute of the match, with the score still at 1-3, the bet was cashed out, returning $7429 to the man. The cash-out feature allows customers to get money back on their punt before the event they are betting on is complete. A fifth goal was scored in the 88th minute of the match, just 33 seconds after the bet was cashed out. Moments later the man phoned Bet365 questioning why he received the cash out amount and suggested that something was wrong with their system. As you can see from my history, I bet a lot and I never cash out, he told the phone betting team at the time. Bet365 submitted that cashing out can only be done by the customer while logged in, and requires the customer to follow an active two-step process. The gambling companys audit showed there was no evidence of any technical issues with its systems that day and no other Bet365 customer had ever raised an issue such as this before. The commission added that no similar complaints had ever been raised with the body before.
