A suspected teenage burglar has been ordered by the judge of a Belfast-based High Court to part with his most valued Xbox gaming console as a part of bail.

The 13-year-old unnamed boy has been charged with a series of thefts in County Down, Northern Ireland.

The boy, when found by the judge that his most prized possession is his Xbox, was asked to hand over the gaming console till the case was over to teach the boy a lesson, the ITProPortal reported.
