MAGISTRATES issued a warrant for the arrest of teenager Tobias Badcock when he failed to attend Ely courthouse.

Badcock, 19, of Guntons Close, Soham, is accused of breaching the terms of his community order.

The teenager was given the 12-month order -- involving supervision and 216 hours of unpaid work -- back in November of last year, after he admitted a charge of criminal damage.

He had used silver paint to decorate Soham Town Council's pavilion in Fountain Lane; and was ordered to pay �50 compensation.

At that November court hearing, Badcock also admitted breaching the terms of a previous community order, imposed for offences of assault and possessing a class C drug.

This week the court was told that Badcock had missed appointments with the probation service on March 18 and 20, and failed to keep in touch with the relevant officer.
