A man accused of a string of offences across the Orana region in September has had his matter mentioned in Dubbo Local Court.
Benjamin Allyn Brotherton, 35, was not required to appear via video link from the correctional centre where he had been remanded in custody.
The Nyngan man has pleaded not guilty to larceny, stealing a motor vehicle and driving in a manner dangerous, and is also charged with aggravated break and enter.
The prosecution sought an adjournment, telling the court there were still outstanding items in the brief of evidence.
The prosecutor proposed a date in January, when a co-accused’s matter would also be listed, and it was not opposed by the defence.
Mr Brotherton is charged with stealing a shearing stand and two shearing handpieces to the value of $4600 on September 4 at Dunedoo.
He’s also accused of aggravated break and enter and committing the serious indictable offence of larceny in company on the same day at Wongarbon.
Property including farm clothing, a coin collection, alcohol, meat, jewellery, knives, vehicle parts, a barbecue, power tools, a mobile phone and miscellaneous items were allegedly stolen.
He’s also accused of stealing 60 litres of diesel to the value of $100 at Forbes on September 10.
Then a few days later on September 13-14, Mr Brotherton is charged with stealing a car from Baradine, and with driving recklessly in a manner dangerous to the public in the Coonamble district.
The charges were adjourned to January 9.
