$14k bill for frenzied act of vandalism
A RIVERVIEW woman will be looking for a job after being hit with a $14,563 restitution bill for a frenzied act of vandalism earlier this month.
Malorey Ashligh Doyle, 20, pleaded guilty on Thursday in Ipswich Magistrates Court to six counts of wilful damage after smashing more than 20 windows at a suburban shopping centre.
The court heard six businesses were targeted on February 9, 2016 during the midnight rampage, including a post office, day care, thrift shop, supermarket and laundry.
Doyle also attempted to set fire to an industrial bin located next to two gas cylinders at the complex in Mitchell St, Riverview.
The court heard Doyle was on bail at the time of the rampage after being charged on January 19, 2016 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.
"Me and my partner got into an argument and I got angry and walked off," she said.
"A few hours earlier I had a few glasses of wine but that wore off by then. I have got lots of anger and I just need to get myself sorted out."
Magistrate Donna MacCallum sentenced Doyle to 12 months probation and 200 hours community service.
She further ordered Doyle to pay $14,563.44 in restitution.
