Brett Jackson of Braun Avenue, Dubbo — the 18-year-old who was charged with a series of break and enter at Narromine businesses — has been refused bail at Dubbo Local Court.
Mr Jackson pleaded guilty to two charges of dishonesty obtaining financial advantage and causing disadvantage by deception.
At about 11.05am on March 25 he was captured on CCTV at Coles in Narromine purchasing items with two credit cards belonging to other people.
In relation to several other charges, including a string of break and enters and being in a stolen vehicle, he pleaded not guilty.
Police allege between 2.55am and 5.10am on April 2, and at 1.45am on April 3 Mr Jackson broke into several businesses including Bourchier and Sons, Narromine Smash Repairs and Wideland Ag and Construction.
Mr Jackson is accused of stealing a number of items including cash boxes, vehicle batteries, a mobile phone, business documents and eskys.
Police also allege that Mr Jackson broke into the home of a resident on Manildra Street in Narromine.
The police prosecutor urged Magistrate Gary Wilson to refuse bail.
"The risk is too great," the court heard.
"These are offences that carry 10 to 12 year imprisonment terms."
Mr Jackson's legal representative sought bail for her client and said if bail was granted, he would reside at his father's house in Brewarrina.
