A man charged with robbing the Moama Bakery in Echuca in February will plead guilty to four charges on June 10.

Mitch William Oversby, 24, of Echuca, appeared in custody in Echuca Magistrates Court yesterday facing charges of robbery, theft, theft of a motor vehicle and breach of a community corrections order (CCO).

Solicitor Matt Mahady made no application for bail and asked for the matter to be adjourned to the same court on June 10 for a consolidated plea of guilty.

Oversby has been in custody since March 5 when he was arrested by Echuca detectives 12 days after the daylight robbery of the Ogilvie Ave bakery.

Police at the time said he fled with ‘‘an amount of cash’’.

The robbery breached the CCO Oversby was placed on in September last year for drug, violence, burglary and theft offences.
