More news, no ads


A man who admitted breaking into a house under renovation and stealing electrical tools and a television has been sent for sentencing at the crown court.

Appearing at Boston Magistrates Court, Harry Loveridge, 20, of Marquess Court, Bourne, admitted burglary and theft from the house at Roman Road in Moulton Chapel on May 16 last year.

Prosecuting, Callum Morris said the house was being renovated by the owner with a view to moving in, but he discovered it had been entered and items stolen on May 16 and set up a CCTV system after calling the police.

He said the house was entered again and this time Loveridge and two other men were seen to be the offenders.

Mr Morris said Loveridge admitted he had been asked by the other two men, who have not been identified, to drive them to the house as he had a car, but he was not involved in the first burglary.

He said Loveridge did admit to helping remove the electrical tools and the television, but had denied any part in selling the stolen items.

Mitigating, Beris Brickles said the house was not occupied at the time and the burglary had taken place in broad daylight.

He said Loveridge was 19 at the time, had no previous convictions for dishonesty and was now employed and being trained as a bricklayer.

The magistrates said the offence was too serious for them to sentence and he was sent to Lincoln Crown Court for sentence on a date to be arranged. He was granted unconditional bail.
