Employee charged

Police have charged the 26-year-old woman with two counts of stealing as a servant.

Senior Sergeant Brad Burnett said the woman began working at the first store on January 28 last year, alleging she stole jewellery between October and November, before using it to get a loan at a separate business.

He said she then began working at a different store, where she allegedly committed the same offence, but this time took the goods to a retailer she had not yet visited.

It resulted in the woman’s charges relating to four stores across Perth – two at which she worked and two where she allegedly sought loans.

She was bailed in Joondalup Magistrates Court on February 15 and is due to reappear on March 14.
