Man admits twice trying to torch speed camera in Adelaide

A man who twice tried to set fire to a speed camera in Adelaide has pleaded guilty to two property damage offences.

Russell Weribone admitted the bizarre attack in November last year in a brief appearance in Adelaide Magistrates Court today.

The court previously heard he used a fuel-soaked sock in his second attempt to torch the camera on the corner of Greenhill Road and Anzac Highway after a fire he had lit about three hours earlier had been quickly extinguished.

The 40-year-old has been bailed until sentencing submissions in March.

Weribone also pleaded guilty to a separate offence of failing to truly answer police questions in relation to an incident in March last year.

The 40-year-old was remanded on continuing bail to appear for sentencing submissions in March.

He declined to comment outside court.
