Custody remand on Fendalton burglary charge

March 25, 2015 | By More

Court House-entranceNo bail was sought when a 35-year-old man appeared in court on charges arising from a Fendalton burglary where police alleged he rammed his way off the property in a car.

Duty lawyer Kerry Cook asked for the remand for Joseph Luke Tindall so that an application could be made for legal aid.

Tindall entered no pleas to charges of burglary of a house in Thornycroft Street, driving while forbidden, dangerous driving, and failing to stop for the police.

The court documentation gives his address as “no fixed abode, Christchurch central”.

Police allege the incident took place while the burglary victims were moving into a new home. While they were away from the property a neighbour noticed a different car in the driveway.

The neighbour approached the house while the owners returned home and parked behind the unknown car. When he was approached, the driver of the unknown car returned to his vehicle and rammed the homeowner’s car and the fence to get clear before driving off. Police said the vehicle was stopped soon after as it drove through St Albans.

Tindall has been remanded in custody to appear by in court by video-link from Christchurch Men’s Prison on Monday morning.
