A teenager has been charged with various offences alleged to have occurred while under the influence of drugs in the state’s north-west.
About 7am yesterday (Sunday 22 September 2019), it is alleged the 19-year-old man entered a home on White Circle at Mudgee where he stole car keys and a wallet.
The man stole a hatchback sedan parked in the driveway of the home, before performing a series of burnouts on the street and driving off.
The man drove to an unoccupied housing estate where he performed more burnouts, and in doing so damaged temporary fencing and the vehicle.
The man drove to Inglis Street where he crashed the car into the front yard of a home before attempting to steal a second vehicle parked in a driveway.
Occupants of the home disturbed the man and followed him as he ran from the location.
The man then entered the car park of a fast food restaurant on Church Street where he attempted to push a man off his motorbike multiple times.
About 7.25am, officers attached to Orana Mid Western Police District arrived and arrested the man who allegedly appeared drug affected.
He was taken to Mudgee Police Station where he was later charged with aggravated break, enter and steal, illegal use of conveyance, reckless driving, malicious damage, attempted illegal use of conveyance, assault with intent to rob and common assault.
He was granted strict conditional bail to appear before Mudgee Local Court on Wednesday 6 November 2019.
