A bicycle thief has faced court after bikes were stolen in Welwyn Garden City.


A young Welwyn Garden City bicycle thief is now under electronic curfew after facing court.

The youngster, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted stealing three bikes in Welwyn Garden City.

He stole a bicycle worth £50 in October last year.

In February this year, he stole a £320 bike and another worth £600.

He also admitted trespassing at Gosling Sports Park, stealing food and drink on December 31 last year.

He faced three other charges relating to the sports centre, which he again admitted.

The boy damaged a trampoline, padlock and matting on September 25 last year.

The following day, he damaged fire doors and on January 3 this year he damaged a play area and window.

The boy admitted two further offences, namely an assault in Stevenage on February 20 this year and possession of cannabis in WGC on November 15 last year.

At youth court in St Albans on November 14, he was given a two-month electronic curfew and must be at home between 9pm and 7am.

He must take part in reparation for 18 hours over 16 days and attended appointments with a responsible officer.

No compensation was ordered in connection with the sports centre because the court heard his family was of limited means, but he was ordered to pay £25 compensation for the assault.
