Howlong man refused bail over football thefts

A HOWLONG man facing a series of charges, including thefts from two football clubs and the destruction of a vehicle by fire, made no application for bail during a court appearance yesterday.

Kane Charles Barbour appeared in Albury Local Court on charges of receiving stolen property, being carried in a stolen vehicle, two counts of breaking, entering and stealing, damaging property by fire, intimidation and entering inclosed lands.

Solicitor Andrea MacDonald said Barbour, 18, of Russell Street, did not seek bail.

Ms MacDonald said he had other charges listed for Corowa Local Court on January 30.

She asked for all matters to be adjourned to Albury on January 14.

The recent charges relate to Barbour receiving stolen alcohol at Corowa on December 10.

It is alleged he stole alcohol from football clubrooms at Coreen and Rand between December 7 and 12 and was a passenger in a stolen vehicle at Coreen.

The vehicle was destroyed by fire at Urangeline between 11.45am and 4pm on December 10.

It is estimated the damage caused was $5000 to $15,000.

The intimidation charge relates to an incident at Howlong on December 21 and police say Barbour had entered inclosed lands at Corowa on December 16 or 17.

Registrar Wendy Howard was told the charges listed at Corowa are two counts of property damage and shoplifting.

Barbour will appear through a video link to court on January 14 when a Director of Public Prosecutions representative will be present.
