Stolen objects found in rooms

TWO teenage girls have kick-started their criminal careers with a number of serious offences including fraud, burglary and stalking.

Jemimma Louise Lambley, 18, and Chantelle Brooke O'Hanlon, 19, entered a Warwick residence on May 14.

During the heist two computers, an iPod, two piggy banks, a camera and a trinket box were stolen and a number of the items were later recovered in the girls' bedrooms.

The two laptop computers were hocked at Cash Converters for a total of $210.

Lambley was also convicted of receiving a pink Blackberry phone from an unrelated theft.

In a separate incident, the two unemployed teenagers spent an afternoon lapping around Warwick High School and intimidated a 15-year-old girl.

On the first lap, Lambley "death stared" the girl, on the second she made offensive hand gestures, on the third she swore at the girl and on the fourth and final lap, Lambley exited the car and attempted to approach the girl. O'Hanlon was the driver during the attack.

The Warwick Magistrates Court last week heard the frightened student sought help from a teacher and was too scared to leave school on her own that afternoon.

Defence counsel for the teenagers told the court the incident was retaliation for Lambley's sister being bullied at school.

Lambley was fined $1000 and ordered to pay $20 restitution and O'Hanlon was fined $750 and ordered to pay $80 restitution.

No conviction was recorded against either teenager.
