Ringleader's theft competition

Written By miftah nugraha on Selasa, 12 Februari 2013 | 19.55

A YOUNG man went on a car stealing spree to demonstrate to a friend he was a better thief, the Supreme Court has heard.

Shayden James Cohen, 18, of Moonah, pleaded guilty to 26 charges including multiple counts of car theft, unlawfully setting fire to property, stealing and driving while disqualified.

Crown Prosecutor Yolanda Prenc said Cohen drove a stolen bobcat into a shed at Southern Waste Solutions at Derwent Park in March last year causing $15,000 worth of damage.

He then stole a front-end loader and drove it into a cribroom, causing $40,000 worth of damage.

Cohen was the ringleader of a quartet of youths who went on a spree stealing and torching cars in July last year.

Over the course of a single night, the youths stole cars from Hobart, Claremont, New Town, Glebe, Moonah and Lenah Valley, stealing from some and setting fire to those they were able to drive away.

When arrested on July 19, Cohen admitted being "the boss" of the gang and admitted all of the offences.

He said he had been in a competition with one of the other men to demonstrate he was a better thief.

Defence lawyer Tim Mills said his client's offending was largely as a result of alcohol and boredom.

Justice Shan Tennent will sentence Cohen on February 22.
