Teen reoffends hours after release on bail

A TEENAGER who threw a basketball-sized rock through a retail store window only hours after he'd been released on bail has faced court.

Ipswich Magistrates Court heard Daniel John Jager, 17, was picked up by police for a string of break and enter offences.

He was released on bail on December 12 and at 1.30am on December 13, Jager smashed his way into a DFO Jindalee clothing store and stole boxes of Nike clothing.

When police went to his Leichhardt home they found the clothes stolen during the robbery, and Jager was wearing the same clothes he was caught in on CCTV monitors.

The teen was arrested, and faced court charged with the new offences, as well as his 13th fail to appear offence.

Jager was sentenced to three months' prison, wholly suspended for 12 months.

He will next appear in court to face eight other charges of burglary and unlawfully using a motor vehicle on January 8.
