A TEENAGE tearaway has admitted to committing a catalogue of crime across Suffolk.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to burglary, theft and possession of drugs.

He is now waiting to hear his fate after Ipswich magistrates adjourned sentencing for the preparation of pre-sentence reports.

On July 11, the youth, along with another, stole goods, including a bottle of vodka, valued at £16 from the Solar store in Hamlet Road, Felixstowe.

He was arrested by police and bailed to return to the station on July 17.

In court on Tuesday > he admitted not answering his bail.

While still at large on August 2, the youth stole a mountain bike valued at £112.

On August 7 he broke into the kitchen of a Felixstowe hotel and stole a handbag.

The court heard that this crime was committed with other people.

The following day the youth was caught by police and found to be in possession of the class B drug, cannabis.

At the court hearing the teenager, who lives in Ipswich, admitted that he had breached a referral order which had been imposed for a previous offence.

Magistrates adjourned the case for reports to be written before a sentence is decided.

The youth was released on conditional bail to return to court on September 12.
