Agostino’s bail was continued until a new court date on February 27 – two weeks after Magistrate Christopher Longley issued the arrest warrant.

The former property manager was seen dropping off her young son at daycare on Wednesday morning, not far from her home on the northern beaches.

She swapped the glamourous attire she usually dons for photos shared with her almost 8,000 Instagram followers for a tight tank top, track pants, and sandals.  

Agostino is charged with two counts of breaking and entering to steal property valued at less than $60,000.

She is also charged with breaking and entering with intent to steal, one count of aggravated breaking and entering in company to steal less than $60,000, and one count of dishonestly obtaining property by deception. 

Documents tendered to the court alleged Agostino targeted several businesses and properties during an early morning burglary spree.

Agostino allegedly first broke into the Pound of Pizza restaurant in Tramore Pl Killarney Heights at 1.52am on November 6 and stole a mobile phone.

Minutes later, it’s alleged the former Killarney Heights High School student broke into the nearby House of Fruit convenience store at 1.54am.

Not long after, at 1.56am, police allege Agostino then attempted to break into Le Parisen Cafe.

Within an hour, she allegedly targeted Stanley St Cafe in St Ives, where police claimed she stole $300 cash and a Westpac credit card.

Officers alleged she later used the credit card to buy food worth $11.55 at McDonald’s Brookvale.

On November 24, police allege Agostino broke into Forestville Bakery and stole $1000 in the presence of another person.

According to bail documents tendered to the court, the prosecution are planning to include CCTV footage as part of its case. 

Agostino had initially been granted conditional bail but didn’t enter a plea.

Her former barrister, Bronwyn Pullinger, who appeared in court on behalf of Agostino on January 23, has since withdrawn from the case.
