Something like 'going equipped' to commit a crime, by a known
criminal - or being found on enclosed premises gazing lovingly at piles

No, see the other posts. The offence involves being a
previously-convicted person who has re-offended or been found in
suspicious circumstances too soon after a previous relevant
conviction. In some ways it is a Victorian variation on the theme of
so-called "two strikes and you're out" penalties.
