Man to apply for bail in Ballarat Magistrates Court

A BAIL application for a 19-year-old man alleged to have used an imitation firearm to commit a robbery on Sunday morning has been adjourned.

Jake David Wakelin will instead apply for bail in Ballarat Magistrates Court next Monday.

Wakelin and Tai Sharp, 20, both face nine charges each, including armed robbery, attempted armed robbery and theft.

Sharp was released on bail on Monday and, according to charge sheets obtained by The Courier at the time, the pair allegedly robbed a male of his $600 mobile phone by using a fake gun.

On the same day, they allegedly attempted to commit another armed robbery and threatened to kill three males and one female.

The charge sheets also allege the pair broke into a Ballarat house stealing property valued at $5000 and attempted to break into a Wendouree house.
