TWO teenagers have been granted bail in court, accused of a raft of property offences after two break-ins in Tamworth this week.
Jesse Justin Oliver, 18, as well as a 17-year-old boy, who cannot be identified because of his age, fronted Tamworth Local Court on Friday on home invasion charges.
Police claim three males stormed a Rupari Drive home in Nemingha between 9.30am and 12.30pm on Tuesday. Goods including a television along with two guitars were stolen.
The trio then allegedly drove an unregistered silver Ford SUV to a Valleyview Grove home and forced their way before making off with a wallet and other goods.
Police were alerted, and the Oxley Proactive Crime Team took control of the investigation.
The officers then tracked the Ford Territory and stopped it in East Tamworth at 10pm on Thursday. Inside, they allegedly located goods they claim were stolen.
An 18-year-old and a 21-year-old man inside were arrested and taken to Tamworth police station and questioned by investigators.
Oliver is accused of two counts of aggravated break, enter and stealing in company; custody of a knife in a public place; as well as two counts of using an unregistered vehicle.
He spent the night in custody before being granted bail by magistrate Julie Soars in court on Friday.
Oliver was not required to enter pleas to the charges and was granted bail to stay away from his co-accused.
He'll have to report to police three times a week; is prohibited from taking drugs; must attempt to enter a drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre; and undergo drug and alcohol counselling.
The 21-year-old man is facing an allegation of receiving stolen goods and was granted conditional bail by police. A 17-year-old girl was also dealt with under the Young Offenders Act.
Officers them homed in on a 17-year-old boy at a Tamworth motel just before 8am on Friday.
He was taken to Tamworth police station and charged with two counts of aggravated break, enter and stealing in company.
The teenager was refused release by police but was later granted bail in court by Ms Soars.
