Burglar, who stole a Louis Vuitton handbag, refused bail

ANTON Haynes may have out-run his victim, but he couldn't out-run the law.

The 21-year-old faced 15 charges relating to a number of property offences in the Rockhampton Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Haynes allegedly fled a Rockhampton home just after midnight on November 13 carrying nine bottles of alcohol, a Louis Vuitton handbag and a bucket of coins amounting to almost $1000.

Police prosecutor Matthew Heelan said the victim came home and found Haynes in his house. Mr Heelan said the victim then chased Haynes down the street but Haynes eventually got away.

It is also alleged Haynes and a co-offender broke into the Kawana home of a sleeping couple on October 22, taking a mobile phone and $100 cash.

Mr Heelan also told the court Haynes and co-offenders broke into Rockhampton's Global Burgers restaurant on November 6, but fled when an alarm was activated.

Lawyer Grant Cagney made an application for bail on Haynes' behalf, which was opposed by Mr Heelan.

Mr Heelan said the defendant was an unacceptable risk of re-offending and failing to appear. Mr Cagney said his client had become involved with the wrong people. He said Haynes wanted to get out of Rockhampton and get back on the "straight and narrow".

Magistrate Barry Cosgrove refused bail and Haynes will re-appear on December 13.
