Former pizza shop worker on behaviour bond for stealing

TAKING a slice out of the company coffers finally caught up with one Gladstone woman, whose youthful discretions working at a pizza shop were punished in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Rachael Elaine Sekulich pleaded guilty to one charge of stealing as a clerk and servant which dated back to incidents in March 2008, when she was an employee at Eagle Boys in Springwood.

Caught out on CCTV on two separate occasions, police finally caught up with Sekulich after the now mother-of-two had relocated to Gladstone.

Police alleged at about 4pm on March 19, 2008, Sekulich had been filmed putting through the sale for a bottle of coke on the cash register.

While making that transaction, she helped herself to $100, confirmed when the till was counted $100 short at the end of business.

On March 26 in the same year, Sekulich was again recorded on CCTV, seen to be removing $50 notes from money bags in an unlocked safe in the store, stealing $400 in total on that occasion.

Sekulich's defence solicitor Bill McMillan, SC, said his client recognised the stupidity of the offences she had committed in her youth.

Magistrate Russell Warfield placed Sekulich on a $1000, six-month good behaviour bond, ordering her to pay $500 restitution, but opted not to record a conviction.
