Mum admits to drunken heist

Written By miftah nugraha on Senin, 18 Februari 2013 | 19.55

A SINGLE mother drank two dozen beers before robbing her local bottleshop at gunpoint, the Supreme Court in Hobart has been told.

Verriece Aileen McLean, 39, of Lutana, has pleaded guilty to armed robbery and a string of firearms offences.

Crown Prosecutor Yolanda Prenc today told the court McLean held up a 9-11 Bottleshop on the Brooker Highway on November 25 last year.

McLean walked into the store about 7.30pm, produced a shortened .22-calibre rifle from her bag and said to the 23-year-old attendant: "This is a robbery".

"I don't want to hurt you, don't touch the button and lock the door."

The attendant shoved $1300 into a plastic bag and McLean left the store.

Police found her hiding in bushes not far from the shop. She emerged with her hands up, yelling: "I did it, I did it".

Officers recovered the gun and 16 rounds of ammunition in her bag.

When interviewed, she was unable to recall what she'd done.

"I can't remember what I've done and I'm sorry if I have done something -- which I obviously have," she told police.

Defence lawyer Todd Kovacic said his client was a former drug user who suffered from mental health problems and had been drinking heavily on the day of the robbery.

Justice Helen Wood adjourned the case until April 11, ordering a report be prepared on McLean's mental state at the time of the offences.
