ACCUSED dine and dasher Lois Loder will remain behind bars for the foreseeable future after another failed bid to be released from custody.
Loder, who goes by several aliases included Lois Lynn, Emma Davis and Ella Bone, was outed earlier this year by angry restaurant owners.
Pictures were posted to social media accusing the 44-year-old of being a serial thief and a con artist who had done a series of runners as small businesses waited for her to pay her bill.
Loder, 44, appeared in the Perth Magistrate’s Court this morning by video-link from Melaleuca Remand and Reintegration facility in Canning Vale where she re-applied for bail.
The court was told she was taken into custody on September 6 after failing to report to a police station.
At the time, a magistrate chose to keep her behind bars, finding no conditions could be imposed that would ensure she would comply with her bail conditions.
State prosecutors today continued to oppose her bid for release, saying she faced more than 150 charges and had a “litany” of offences on her record.
Prosecutors said there was a risk Loder would re-offend or fail to comply with her bail conditions, adding a term behind bars was “inevitable” if convicted.
Today, Loder, who has so far pleaded guilty to 28 charges, presented a medical certificate which she said explained her failure to report to police.
But WA Chief Magistrate Steven Heath said the document was “extremely unsatisfactory” because it did not offer any details of any supposed medical condition and simply said she was unfit to work.
It also had the wrong date, the court was told, which Loder said was because she was visited by a doctor after midnight.
Mr Heath said he was not satisfied Loder’s circumstances had changed since her first bail application and refused to release her from custody.
She will reappear in court later this month.
