A MAN who stole more than $7000 from a Mandurah fish and chip shop where he worked as a chef was sentenced to community service today.
Danny Paul Carr pleaded guilty to 1`2 counts of stealing as a servant during a previous appearance.
The police prosecutor told court Carr began offending in December last year and continued for a two month period.
Carr would tell the owners that he needed to purchase stock for the kitchen and then produce fake receipts.
He stole $7052.68 from the business, but has since paid back $2700 to Nino’s in Mandurah.
Counsel applied for a spent conviction which was denied.
Magistrate Anne Longden placed Carr on a 12 month community based order with a requirement to complete 60 hours of community service.
She ordered him to pay back $4352.68.
