Teens torch four cars in a night

A GROUP of teens who torched four vehicles in one night had shown "complete disregard" for their victims, a Hobart judge has said.

The Supreme Court in Hobart heard James William Lynch, 19, and three 18-year-old mates met up on July 6 last year and decided to entertain themselves by stealing cars.

Seven vehicles were targeted, with four set alight and destroyed.

One of the victims was unable to work without a car and his family suffered as a result.

The court heard the four teens first drove to Margate and stole five cans of fuel.

Lynch then drove the group to Montagu St, in Hobart, where they were thwarted in their efforts to steal a Subaru Liberty because it had an immobiliser fitted.

They continued on to Cross St, New Town, and broke into a Nissan Patrol wagon. They stole a computer inside the vehicle before driving it into a boomgate near Tolosa St Reserve and setting it on fire.

The next stop was Spring St, Claremont, where they stole a Nissan Navara and torched it.

The group then moved on Baker St, New Town, and broke into a Toyota Hiace van to steal a Navman GPS.

After failing to steal a Nissan Skyline at Glebe, the group drove to Fletcher Ave, Moonah, where they took a Toyota SUV with a trailer attached and "hooned" around a Moonah car park.

They set fire to the SUV after driving through a fence and hitting an excavator.

Still on a rampage at 7am, they stole a Subaru Brumby in Montagu St and drove it to Risdon Cove before setting it alight.

Police later identified one of the teens as a suspect, which led to Lynch being apprehended.

"He said that he had no explanation for what had happened and acknowledged the stupidity of his conduct, saying that if he could turn back the clock he would," Justice David Porter said in sentencing Lynch.

"He seems to be genuinely remorseful for his actions."

The judge told Lynch the group's conduct had caused considerable distress.

Lynch was sentenced two years and three months in jail, wholly suspended on the condition he completes 150 hours of community service and complies with a probation order.
