MAGISTRATES have told a Basingstoke teenager he is on his final warning after he breached bail conditions by leaving his house after an argument with his mum.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is due to stand trial at Winchester Crown Court later this year after being accused of allegedly stealing a man's tobacco.

The boy was jointly accused with 18-year-old Roshaun Mullings-Campbell, of Huxley Road in Tadley, but both denied the robbery of a 20-year-old man in Church Street on June 8.

David Fossler, prosecuting, told Basingstoke Magistrates Court on Friday (September 10) that the Beggarwood teenager was caught breaching his bail conditions by leaving his home between 9.30pm and 1130pm on Thursday night (September 9), despite having a tagged curfew between 9pm and 7am.

Alfie Doran, defending, said: “This is a first breach. He had an argument with his mother and left, and knows he should not have. But he returned home, he is not trying to run away.”

Announcing their decision to re-grant bail to the teenager, magistrates said: “Let this be a final warning. If you should breach these conditions again you are going to find yourself in far more trouble than you currently are.”
