THE love 18-year-old Jayme Schibrowski has for his 17-year-old girlfriend is so strong, he is prepared to breach his bail conditions seven times and spend time behind bars to keep the relationship alive.

Schibrowski mouthed "I love you" to Yasmine Alice Mcgeehan as he was led into custody at Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday.

The couple have supported each other in court on three occasions since last Friday, with Mcgeehan listed on Schibrowski's bail conditions as one of many people he is not to contact.

He pleaded guilty to three charges including breaching bail, stealing and possessing drug related utensils.

Police prosecutor Manon Barwick told the court Schibrowski and two other people entered the Stockland Footlocker store at 2.35pm on Sunday and left without paying for a Nike shirt - the same shirt he wore to court two days later.

"It can't be returned because it's stained and damaged," she said.

Defence lawyer Brian McGowran told the court Schibrowski stole the shirt because he did not have any clothes to wear, as they were at his girlfriend's house.

He said after two days of wearing the stolen shirt, he went to her house to pick up his things.

"He didn't have any clothes, he only had his girlfriend's shirt," he said.

"He's an 18-year-old who nicked a shirt and had a bong, we are going to end up creating a welfare dependant class.

"My taxes and (the police prosecutor's) taxes will end up paying for it.

"I maintain prison is excessive."

Police on Wednesday caught Schibrowski in company with this girlfriend, 24 hours after a Magistrate told him not to contact her.

"He attended (the address) to check on her because she was in the watch house the previous day," Ms Barwick said.

They also found him in possession of a glass pipe which he told police he used to smoked cannabis and tobacco.

Schibrowski first appeared in court on Friday when the case was adjourned and he was granted bail.

He was charged with nine offences including aggravated supply of a dangerous drugs to a minor under 16, possessing drug-related utensils, possessing dangerous drugs, receiving tainted property namely two motorcycles, two counts of stealing and three counts of breaching bail.

He appeared in court again on Tuesday from behind custody glass, charged with breaching his bail conditions.

Magistrate Cameron Press approved Schibrowski's bail application, warning him it was his "last chance".

The court heard each breach of bail offence was in relation to Schibrowski having contact with Mcgeehan and attending her Berserker address.

Magistrate Michael O'Driscoll said Schibrowski had a $4245 SPER debt and had never made a payment.

"If the defendant doesn't have the capacity to pay for a $60 shirt, he shouldn't be receiving fines," Ms Barwick said.

Magistrate O'Driscoll revoked Schibrowski's bail.

"The young person is an unacceptable risk of committing further offences," he said.

"Obviously he cannot comply with bail."

He stood sentencing down to March 23.
