Taylar AmoniniNorth West Telegraph

A South Hedland teen has been denied bail after a spat of violent and antisocial behaviour over the past month.

A 15-year-old teen was seen at the South Hedland Magistrates Court this morning where he was denied bail and remanded in custody until this Friday following a string of burglaries on Tuesday night.

The 15-year-old allegedly broke into a Port Hedland police officers home and vandalised it, allegedly leaving the home “unliveable.”

According to the police prosecutor the teen smashed a window to gain entry where he and another 15-year-old accomplice proceeded to cause significant damage to property in the house.

The teen was charged with aggravated burglary, stealing, criminal damage and threats to kill while his accomplice was also arrested with inquiries continuing after several other burglaries occurred on the same street.
