magistrates court victoria ballarat court

A 17 year old boy has been denied bail over a string of serious driving offences in Creswick and Ballarat in March this year.

The court heard the boy is an ice user and hadn't attended school for five years, after he was found travelling 90km/hr in a 50km/h zone along Ligar Street, before failing to give way at Landsborough Street which saw him lose control of the vehicle and slam into two parked cars. 

It's also alleged he stole six vehicles across Ballarat and Creswick, and was involved in numerous fuel drive-offs. Police say he had also been selling the drug ice.

He's been remanded in custody and will re-appear in the children's court in Ballarat on July 8.
