A man charged with burglary of the Wellington School of Medicine, where he is alleged to have posed as a doctor, is to make an application for electronic bail.

Pita Phillip Edwards, 26, of Mount Cook, faces 20 charges of burglary of the Wellington School of Medicine, the Otago Medical school campus in Wellington, the Weltec School of Hospitality, Victoria Law School and Internal Affairs and the fraudulent use of documents like taxi chits and cheques.

Wellington District Court judge Tom Broadmore today remanded him in custody until later in the month for the application to be heard.

Edwards has not pleaded to the charges.  

He had allegedly donned a white coat and stethoscope to get into the school of medicine.  He has not been charged with impersonating a doctor.

It's contemptible and insulting.

I don't care.
