Judge shows burglar some mercy
9:10am Saturday 3rd May 2014 in News
A SERIAL burglar who stole two fold-up bikes during a break-in has been given one last chance by a judge.
Luke Newell, of Lake Road, admitted carrying out the burglary in Wytham Street on December 21 last year. The 39-year-old drug addict stole two Brompton bikes, two iPods, a laptop computer and five bottles of alcohol – in total worth £2,370.
Judge Ian Pringle said he would defer his sentence until August 1 to see if he could take this last chance to stop offending.
