A TEENAGER has admitted a string of offences committed in Gosforth in January.

The 16-year-old from a Tynedale village, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty at North Tyneside Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday to theft from a shop, using a stolen bank card, two charges of receiving stolen goods and failing to surrender to court in February.

He was referred to the Youth Offender Panel for nine months, and ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £21 and costs of £39.
