Teenager put behind bars

A GIRL who allegedly breached her probation for a second time will get a taste of life behind bars until her next court date, after her bail was refused in Bundaberg Magistrates Court.

Helena Marie Fisher, 17, stands charged with two counts of stealing, two of breaching bail, and one each of causing a public nuisance, obstructing police and contravening a direction, from two separate incidents.

On August 26, police found Fisher intoxicated, presumed to be from liquor she allegedly stole the same night.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said Fisher told police she had been sniffing glue.

“She has serious issues, in my submission,” Sgt Stevens said.

Defence barrister Simon Burgess said his client received news of a friend's death the day before the incident, which led to the alleged offences.

Magistrate Jennifer Batts refused Fisher bail. She will be remanded in custody until her next court appearance on September 28.
