Court and fine for scratchie thief

A BRAZEN thief thought she was in luck when she swiped a roll of $5 scratchies that had been left unattended on the counter of a Warwick supermarket.

Turns out, Cheyenne Correen Dennison had only managed to score herself a windfall of $14 from the 35 tickets, and was arrested as she tried to cash in.

The 30-year-old stole the tickets from Supa IGA Warwick on August 25.

Two days later Dennison took the two winning tickets, with a prize of $7 each, to the Mayfair Casket Agency and attempted to collect her "winnings".

CCTV footage captured Dennison stealing the tickets, and the owners of Warwick casket agencies were told of the theft shortly after it happened.

Unable to convince the first store to make good on the tickets, Dennison tried her luck at the Hynes Newsagency in Rose City Shoppingworld. Her luck ran out when she was nabbed by police while at the store.

Defence solicitor Daniel Habermann told the court his client was no stranger to the courts, and had battled an alcohol addiction.

At the time of the theft she was on parole for a vicious assault in which she kicked two young mothers in the face during a night out.

"It's fair to say my client is her own worst enemy," he said. "She's remarkably sorry and is kicking herself because she realises she can't keep coming back to court."

Dennison was fined $600.
