Greed earns woman 100 hours of community service
A SCAM that saw Shianne Jessica Vanklink steal more than $2000 from her employer has seen her ordered to give back to the community.
Vanklink, 19, pleaded guilty yesterday at the Ipswich Magistrates Court to stealing as a servant. The court heard Vanklink was working for a food shop in Raceview when the manager noticed a high number of refunds going through.
He checked security footage and found Vanklink was putting refunds into the EFTPOS machine and then taking the cash out herself and hiding it in her shirt. She no longer works at the store.
The court heard she had no excuse and was motivated by greed. She was ordered to perform 100 hours community service and placed on probation for 12 months.
