Bail set for teenager accused of theft

A 17-year-old has denied a string of offences, including the theft of a purse from a Canadian tourist.

Zaire Burrows pleaded not guilty in Magistrates' Court on Tuesday to the theft of a Longchamp purse, a credit card, a Canadian driving licence and an iPhone owned by Tracy Tory.

The incident is alleged to have happened on August 23.

The court heard that the items had a total value of $1,050.

Mr Burrows also pleaded not guilty to the theft of a motorcycle, failure to stop for police, dangerous driving, failure to stop after an accident and driving a motorbike of more than 50cc while underage.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released Mr Burrows, from Pembroke, on $3,000 bail and adjourned the case until October 14.
