OTTAWA -- Sticky fingers have landed a 14-year-old Cornwall, Ont., boy in court again.

City cops arrested the teen on Monday after he allegedly stole $10 from his mother's piggy bank.

He's also accused of swiping a $20 gift card from her wallet sometime in the last six weeks.

The boy is charged with theft under $5,000, two counts of breach of probation for failing to keep the peace, and for not abiding by house rules.

The teen -- whose name is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act -- was released and appears in court Feb. 13.
