A man has been jailed for looting during the floods in the southern Queensland city of Bundaberg earlier this year.
Bundaberg Magistrates Court heard Kai Phillip Murgatroyd, 27, was intoxicated when he broke into a flooded North Bundaberg home on January 27.
He stole cash, food and alcohol.
Police charged him with looting before dropping him off at a Red Cross flood evacuation centre.
An hour later, Murgatroyd was found near the centre in possession of garden equipment from another flood-affected house.
The prosecution said Murgatroyd showed no remorse for the offences.
In sentencing, the magistrate said it was a despicable act that would make any law abiding citizen's blood boil.
Murgatroyd was sentenced to a year in jail.
He will be eligible for parole in September.
