A Ganmain man who allegedly stole more than $3000 of items ranging from an Apple laptop and two packets of Mars ice creams has been refused bail. 

Isaac Peter Houssenloge, 28, pleaded guilty to five counts of larceny when the case was mentioned in Wagga Local Court this week.

Houssenloge’s spree also included a stolen phone, two USB sticks and various groceries from a Coolamon and Glenfield Park supermarket. 

Police prosecutor Priscilla Jones strongly opposed the bail application and said Houssenloge was a danger to the community. 

“His behaviour is a great concern and there’s doubt over whether he'd comply with anything,” Ms Jones said. 

“There’s been previous warrants and there’s a concern he could continue to commit further offences.” 

Magistrate Michael Crompton said he wasn’t satisfied Houssenloge had shown cause why his detention wasn’t justified, as he denied the application. The matter was adjourned until August 18.
