A woman has faced Busselton Magistrate Court on Tuesday, September 26 charged with 29 counts of stealing as a servant.

Ayesha Abdul Malek is accused of stealing from a cafe in Busselton while she was employed there.

It is alleged Ms Malek stole several different amounts of cash over a few months, ranging from $45 to $270. She is also charged with four counts of attempted stealing as a servant. Ms Malek did not enter a plea and the matter was remanded until October 10, 2017.

Ellysia Paige Shillito also faced Busselton Magistrate Court on Tuesday, September 26, faced with charges of assault on two police officers and disorderly behaviour.

Ms Shillito pleaded guilty to two charges of assault of an officer, one charge of disorderly public behaviour and one count of obstructing public officers.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Greg Ward told the court police attended a disruptive scene a property in Busselton last July, where Ms Shillito was seen out the front swearing and yelling abuse. When she was moved into the police car she became increasingly aggressive, punching an officer in the head and biting another on the wrist. 

Magistrate Shackleton said anyone who assaulted a police officer should be prepared to face the consequences.

“Anyone who is willing to assault a police officer must consider that they may face imprisonment,” Mr Shackleton said.  A pre-sentencing report will be held on November 14, 2017. Ms Shillito was told to contact community corrections within 72 hours of facing court.
