A TEENAGER has admitted a string of motoring and dishonesty offences after appearing in court.

Keiran Gettins, 19, pleaded guilty at Sunderland Magistrates’ Court to taking a Hyundai car without the owner’s consent, driving without due care and attention, driving with no insurance, and driving without a licence.

The driving offences took place on March 19 on Roker Retail Park.

Gettins, of Helmsdale Road, Hylton Lane Estate, Sunderland, admitted stealing a £48 bottle of Paco Rabane perfume from Debenhams in Sunderland, and making off without paying a £12 taxi fare.

Magistrates bailed him to return to court to be dealt with on February 3, next year.
