Robert Ursida, 45, is accused of unplugging a skill tester machine at Parabanks Shopping Centre before running off with the device.
When police later searched his Parafield Gardens home, they charged Ursida with allegedly stealing 10 of the machines.

He was already on police bail after being charged with a separate theft days earlier.

He then dived head-first through the passenger window before driving off.
Ursida's matter was adjourned until he secures a lawyer to represent him.
He'll return to court in March.
