A LOCKWOOD teenager has appeared in court facing charges of attempted burglary and possessing offensive weapons.
John Swift, of Woodhead Road, was before Kirklees magistrates via a prison video link.
He is accused of attempting to enter a property in Blackhouse Road, Fartown, to steal on January 8.
The 19-year-old faces further charges of possession of a lock knife and an ASP, a type of baton, in a public place at Woodhouse Hill in Fartown.
The magistrates – sitting at the Huddersfield town centre courts – had to ask him to pay attention as he looked bored during the brief hearing.
He replied with offensive language – which the prison officer had to mute with his control – and was removed from the video link room at Doncaster Prison for ‘improper behaviour’.
The teenager will next appear before magistrates on February 23 when his case is likely to be committed to crown court.
He was remanded in custody until that date.
