Two brothers charged over the attempted break-in at Amity Tavern last month have fronted court.

Phillip Clinton James Woods, 27, and Tayte Deon Woods, 20, faced a charge of aggravated burglary in Albany Magistrate’s Court last Thursday. The pair were caught on CCTV and seen by a passer-by attempting to smash a roller door to gain entry about 9.30pm on January 22.

Appearing via video link from Albany Regional Prison, Phillip Woods pleaded guilty to the charge, with the matter remanded to sentence on February 28.

The lawyer for Tayte Woods requested an adjournment for legal advice and relaxing of his bail conditions to allow him to drink alcohol, which was dismissed by Magistrate Raelene Johnston.

He will next appear in court on March 14.
