Twins, 20, double the trouble

LISMORE twins caught up in house break-ins and a night of golf buggy mayhem have received 12-month good behaviour bonds.

Nathan and Timothy Anderson, 20, pleaded guilty in the Lismore Local Court to separate offences involving the thefts of property from Goonellabah and Lismore homes.

Timothy, of Atlas Street, pleaded guilty to stealing a Sony home television theatre from a Goonellabah house on January 16 (with co-offender Matthew Johnson); and stealing two BMX bikes from a Lismore house on January 3.

Police documents stated Timothy acted as a look-out in the Goonellabah break-in at Abelia Close when the large television was stolen and also helped carry it.

In the second offence, Timothy believed a person he knew stole two pushbikes and he went to a Lismore house with Matthew Johnson, aged 21, to search for them.

Two bikes were found and although they were not the ones he and Johnson still stole them.

Timothy also pleaded guilty to two counts of damaging property in January – including a $5000 motorised golf buggy at the Lismore Workers Golf Club.

After a night out at the Lismore Workers Club, Timothy joined mates at the golf course who broke into a shed and took two golf buggies. Timothy drove one around a fairway green then went home.

Extensive damage was caused to the greens and both $5000 buggies were written off

Four nights later, Timothy and the same group of young mates returned to the golf club, but were unable to start the damaged buggies.

A golf buggy was then taken from a house on Wyrallah Road and driven around the golf course withTimothy a passenger.

His brother Nathan Anderson pleaded guilty to stealing property, a television and computer, from a house on March 3.
