THE Suva Magistrates Court bailed an 18-year-old mother facing one count of aggravated burglary and theft because she helped police in the recovery of some items.

Josifini Maria appeared before magistrate Makereta Mua for burglary offences she allegedly committed between April 1-4 this year.

The Legal Aid Commission lawyer that made representation in court on the accused person's behalf told the court that Ms Maria needed to be released on bail because she had a family to look after with her one-year and two-month-old baby, and that she had also submitted names to police that could assist with their investigations.

The court also heard submissions that she posed no threat to the community.

Police prosecutor Pauliasi Lutunauga informed Ms Mua that properties stolen had amounted to $3000 and some items had been recovered by police with Mrs Maria's help.

The matter has also been transferred to the High Court for mention on April 25.
