Teen steals from ex-employer

A TEENAGER angry over being fired from Cherrabah Homestead Resort took revenge by breaking into the homestead and stealing property.

Tyrone James Pascoe, 17, worked as a trail guide at the Warwick homestead for five months and lived on site.

His employment was terminated two weeks before the break-in.

Prosecutor Sergeant Karen Kroon said Pascoe had a falling out with staff at 1.30pm on December 6.

He went to a shed, broke a locked door and stole barbed wire and a tool box.

Pascoe then entered a second shed and stole a jackhammer and more barbed wire.

A friend of Pascoe drove him from the homestead to Pascoe's parents' home in Toowoomba.

The Toowoomba Magistrates Court heard Pascoe owned a saddle and a utility at the homestead which he wanted to retrieve.

However, after arguing with staff he told police he intended to break into sheds and steal anything he could find.

He had no use for barbed wire or the other items he stole.

Pascoe admitted the "stupidity" of his actions.

He told police later that evening he had been involved in a break-in at the homestead.

He appeared in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court today and pleaded guilty to stealing and break and enter.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck placed Pascoe on probation for 12 months.

The convictions were not recorded.
