A GERMAN backpacker accused of vandalising 10 Metro trains has been released on bail and ordered to stay away from the train operator’s property.
Peter James Lorenzen, 21, spent two nights behind bars after allegedly refusing to give police his residential address.
Magistrate Franz Holzer accepted the 21-year-old would unlikely receive any jail time if found guilty of the criminal damage charges, but said he was a flight risk without a stable residence.
This guy deserves to have the book thrown at him. Damages public property and then leaves the country and thinks he is safe. Only to find his way back here with the long arm of the law.
