A 17-year-old joy rider smashed fences and sheds in his journey of destruction a court heard.
The Ipswich teenager who cannot be named for legal reasons pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicle taking.
John Hardwick, prosecuting at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court said; "The youth was not driving the car at the time and was merely a passenger. However, it does not matter that he was not the driver, he was in the car and I do not know who was driving so the damage to the vehicle, another car, shed, fences the lot, all the damage falls on him".
The boy who has been before the courts many times before was told he would be sentenced on July 24.
Reports were to be prepared and all the court sentencing options were to remain open.
He was released from court on bail with conditions to live at his Ipswich address and stay there between 8am an 8pm daily.
