A HENTY teenager involved in a theft and damage worth more than $3000 at a North Albury house just before Christmas last year will be sentenced next month after the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
According to police, the girl, 15, had a history of break, enter and steal matters.
She pleaded guilty in Albury Children’s Court to charges of aggravated break and enter in company and aggravated break and enter with intent in company.
Magistrate Megan Greenwood said it was appropriate to get a report and adjourned sentencing until October 22.
The girl and an accomplice jumped a fence at a Regina Avenue house about 9.20pm on December 23 to take a short cut to Springdale Heights.
They realised there was no one home and entered an entertainment area at the back of the house surrounded by a 2½-metre fence.
The girl tried to open a glass door to get inside but was unable and left smudge marks on a glass panel, as did her accomplice.
Both attempted to rip off a flyscreen and melted a hole in it before leaving by climbing a large concrete water fountain in a corner near the wall.
The accomplice landed on the fountain causing it to fall and make a loud noise.
It broke into many pieces, neighbours heard the smash and had a look around, but could not see anything.
A side gate was used by the offenders to leave the property.
They went to another residence in Regina Avenue and jumped a fence to get access to the back of the house.
The accomplice smashed a window and entered but in the process she cut her right arm when getting through.
They stole a variety of items including a gold bracelet valued at $2000, along with computer games, controllers, a mobile phone and money.
Á trail of blood was left through the house by the accomplice.
There was damage caused to a window, two flyscreens and a side gate.
The residence was being rented and the total cost of damage and the items stolen was $3210.
