The Block 2015‘s Suzi Taylor faced court after being caught with stolen bank and identification cards.

On May 30, police caught Taylor with a debit card, Medicare card and Western Australian heavy vehicle licence that did not belong to her.

What’s more is that the licence’s original ID photo had been altered to depict Taylor, according to the Gold Coast Bulletin.

Appearing at Southport Magistrates Court on October 10, the former reality star pleaded guilty to one count of possessing items suspected of being stolen or unlawfully obtained. 

While she was convicted, Taylor avoided punishment for the crime.

Authorities located the items in the 51-year-old’s wallet during a raid of the former model’s Southport home as part of a separate investigation.

Taylor was then arrested and remained in custody for 24 hours before being released on bail.

At the time, her lawyer Michael Gatenby described the decision to jail his client over a minor charge as “disgusting”.

The band cards and ID were believed to have been stolen from a vehicle in Miami in 2020.

While it was unclear how The Block contestant came to have them, Taylor alleged she’d been set up by a man who regularly visited her property.

The Block‘s Suzi Taylor Has Previously Been In Trouble with the Law

This is not the first time Taylor has been pulled up for illegal dealings.

In May 2019, the mother of three pleaded guilty to fraud and theft charges after she was busted using a stolen credit card to purchase booze.

She was filmed buying alcohol with a credit card she’d stolen from a recovering patient at Mater Hospital.

A week later, Westin Hospital staff identified her on CCTV, taking a mobile phone and laptop from a guest.

Police found the stolen items at her home on May 10, and she was served a notice to appear in court. She was then issued a $2,500 fine.

In October of the same year, Taylor was back in court after being accused of “honey trapping” a Tinder date. The man alleged he was assaulted and forced to transfer money while held against his will.

Before the trial, she spent 202 days behind bars, including a month in solitary confinement.

While Queensland Police filed over 100 charges against Taylor, 70 charges were dropped after a prosecutor at Brisbane’s Magistrates Court found no evidence on several counts.

However, she did plead guilty to 30 charges, including possessing small amounts of cocaine and marijuana and trespassing.

Taylor was convicted but was not further punished by Magistrate Stephen Courtney.
