Lovers' tiff lay behind woman's $14,000 rampage

A RIVERVIEW woman who went on a rampage causing thousands of dollars' worth of damage to numerous businesses has appeared in court.

Malorey Ashligh Doyle, 20, was charged earlier this month with six counts of wilful damage after smashing more than 20 windows at a suburban shopping centre.

Doyle also attempted to set fire to an industrial bin located next to two gas cylinders at the Mitchell St, Riverview complex.

Six businesses were targeted in the midnight rampage including a post office, day care, thrift shop, supermarket and a laundry.

She was on bail at the time of the rampage after being charged last month with smashing the window of the Police Beat at Redbank Plaza.

Doyle told 7 News Brisbane after her arrest she committed the crimes because she was angry with her boyfriend.

Legal Aid solicitor Matthew Fairclough told Ipswich Magistrates Court on Thursday Doyle intended to plead guilty to the charges.

But the matter was adjourned when Doyle was informed of the restoration amount sought which totalled more than $14,000.

"She is not confident on proceeding at the moment based on the invoices provided," he said.

"She intends to take a particular course in this matter and will plead guilty to the charges.

"She just wants an opportunity to view the invoices and work out how they have come to that total."

Magistrate Virginia Sturgess ordered the police hand a copy of the invoices to Doyle within two business days.

Magistrate Sturgess said she had also noted Doyle's early guilty plea on file.

The matter was listed for sentencing on February 25.
