A man accused of stealing more than $13,000 in cash and goods from his employer has appeared in court.

The man appeared in Rockingham Magistrate’s Court on Monday charged with 28 counts of stealing as a servant and one count of gaining benefit by fraud.

The court was told between July and December last year, the man was working at a pawnbroker in Rockingham where he allegedly stole on several occasions.

He also allegedly stole items from his employer’s own stock, including an electric guitar, two acoustic guitars, a case and tools worth $1500.

He did not enter a plea.

The case was adjourned so he could seek further legal advice.
