Close call with prison

A JILTED former employee who had a hand in the theft of more than $90,000 from his previous boss has narrowly avoided a lengthy jail term.

Lachlan Tyson Rowlings was one of five thieves who targeted the Loganholme electronics store on the evening of November.

Recently terminated employee Rowlings still had a key to premises, allowing the group access to the store.

Once inside, the crew loaded the goods into Rowlings' car boot, with the remainder going into a utility belonging to the business.

A total of $93,000 of goods, including the car, was stolen that night.About $66,000 worth of the goods were recovered by police.

Magistrate Graham Lee told the 21-year-old he found it disturbing he would use the knowledge gained as an employee and use it in such a dishonest way.

Rowlings was sentenced in the Warwick Magistrates Court to 12 months jail, but was placed on immediate parole.

He was also ordered to pay $6600 restitution, one-fifth of the outstanding amount.
