A 29-year-old Louth man broke into a neighbour’s house twice in a single day intending to steal, a court has been told.
Jack Moody of Swallow Drive, admitted two offences of burglary with intent to steal at the house just 30 yards from his own home on March 13 and also to selling an X Box console at Cash Converters in Upgate, Louth purporting that it was his to sell.
Skegness Magistrates Court heard that he entered a neighbour’s garden in Swallow Drive at 9.45 in the morning, then climbed a fence into the next garden and forced an entry into the house bysmashing a window with a brick.
Daniel Pietryka said that Moody did this twice on the same day. He said there was no one in at the time.
He said that when he was interviewed by the police, he admitted it and said he had been short of money.
The magistrates decided they had insufficient powers to punish Moody and he was sent for sentence at Lincoln Crown Court on a date to be arranged. He was granted conditional bail.
