Boy, 16, admits fraud and burglary offences
A 16-year-old boy pleaded has pleaded guilty in court following a number of incidents in the Newark area.
The teen, who can't be named for legal reasons, pleaded to six counts of fraud by false representation, one count of burglary and one count of taking a motor vehicle without the owner’s consent when he appeared at Nottingham Youth Court today (Tuesday).
The court heard that the boy had taken money from an elderly man after he’d been asked to withdraw cash from his bank account and also committed a burglary at a property off Grange Road on Wednesday of last week.
The boy was granted conditional bail, including a condition not to enter Newark, and will re-appear for sentencing on October 31.
He is the latest offender to be brought before the courts since the introduction of Nottinghamshire Police's new dedicated burglary teams, introduced in April, which are focused on tackling and reducing burglary in the county and city.
