Man Charged with Break-in and Fraud in Wallsend

Police have charged a man over alleged break-in and fraud offences in Wallsend.

Officers have been investigating a series of break-ins throughout the suburb since January, and arrested the 18-year-old at a Wallsend home last night.

He’s been charged with a raft of offences including three counts of break and enter, damage property, breach AVO and two counts of obtaining property by deception.

The teenager was refused bail to front Newcastle Local Court today.
