A youth has appeared in court charged with stealing hundreds of pounds worth of computer equipment from a Welwyn Garden City nursery school.

The boy, who can not be named for legal reasons, appeared at youth court in St Albans on February 7.

He admitted possession of a self-sealing bag of cannabis in Hatfield on October 10 last year.

The youngster also admitted trespassing at the nursery of Watchlytes JMI School on July 29 in 2013 and stealing computer equipment.

Magistrates referred him to the youth offender panel for a four-month contract.

His mum must also attend meetings of the youth offender panel.

The cannabis was forfeited under the Misuse of Drugs Act and the youngster was ordered to pay compensation of £75.
