LAVINGTON mother Karen Elizabeth Ezzy has been remanded in custody despite having a child aged one and being eight months’ pregnant with another.
Ezzy appeared in Albury Local Court earlier this week, pleaded guilty to a break, enter and steal offence in North Albury last October and her sentencing was deferred until February 24 for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
But she was arrested on Tuesday night and charged with two more break, enter and steal matters, having goods in custody and possession of a prohibited drug.
The latest offences happened between 5.50pm and 8pm on Tuesday at houses in central Albury including one in Stanley Street where Ezzy allegedly stole a jewellery box.
Solicitor Jason Hanke said when making a release application that Ezzy, 35, of Greyfern Court, intended pleading not guilty to the latest charges.
Mr Hanke said a curfew already imposed on Ezzy could be made more stringent.
Magistrate John Favretto asked whether Ezzy had a drug problem, but Mr Hanke denied that was the case after speaking to her.
“I have my significant misgivings,” he responded.
Police prosecutor Sgt Chris Toole opposed bail saying Ezzy was an unacceptable risk and likely to commit more offences.
Ezzy was refused bail with a police brief of evidence for the latest charges to be prepared by February 10.
Police facts tendered to the court outlined the offence committed by Ezzy in Kooba Street at North Albury on October 9.
The house was locked about 8.20am by the owner and Ezzy went there about 1pm attempting to remove a flywire screen from a window near the front door.
She went through a side gate and tried to jemmy open a rear glass sliding door.
Ezzy managed to get the door off its tracks, squeezed through and ransacked each room in the house, collecting items in a bag.
When the victim returned home and parked in the carport, Ezzy ran across the backyard with the bag.
She jumped a fence, but a neighbour heard noise, went outside and saw Ezzy.
Ezzy dropped the bag, jumped a side fence and the victim recovered $1400 of property which included a video camera, two bracelets and a necklace.
She declined to comment about the break-in when she attended the police station on October 17.
