Ex-CCCI employee’s fraud case mentioned in Chinchilla court

Former employee of the Chinchilla Chamber and Commerce Inc, Gaye Kathleen Smith, who is alleged to have fraudulently obtained between $30,000 and $100,000 from the community organisation, will ask the court to make changes to her bail.

On Thursday, February 4, the Chinchilla Magistrates Court heard Smith will be asking for a change to her bail requirements, which will be submitted to a magistrate by her lawyers at her next court mention.

The court also heard a full brief of evidence was required and would be ordered.

 

Ms Smith is alleged to have committed the following offences:

  • One charge of dishonestly obtaining property from another employee, at the value of over $30,000, but less than $100,000.
  • 32 charges of stealing by clerks or servants.
  • 31 charges of fraudulently falsifying or destroying records.
  • One charge of money laundering.

The mother remains on bail and in contact with police, while she waits for her next court date on Thursday, February 18.
