Teenager caught riding stolen bike


A 17-year-old charged with driving a stolen bike while underage and a string of other traffic offences was released on $5,000 bail at Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

Kayin Carr admitted riding a bike while underage.

However, he pleaded not guilty to theft of the vehicle, dangerous driving, failing to stop for police and driving without insurance and on an unlicensed bike.

The offences are alleged to have happened on April 6 in Devonshire.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe fined Carr, from Pembroke, $250 for underage riding and ordered him to pay by October 29.

Mr Wolffe also ordered him to pay an unpaid fine of $1,100 by the same day.

He adjourned the case until August 19.
