TV found in field lad is re­manded

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEEN claimed he found a stolen 42 inch TV in a field and took it home.

New­ton Ay­cliffe Mag­is­trates’ Youth Court heard how the telly, worth £400, was snatched from Sara Hall’s home in Crook, Co. Durham, when it was bur­gled on Jan 12.

The 15-year-old youth, from Crook, said he was walk­ing through a field to­wards his house when he found it.

He was caught with the set at his home and ar­rested by po­lice the next day.

The Crown Pros­e­cu­tion Ser­vice of­fered no ev­i­dence to three ear­lier charges put to the youth of bur­glary, theft of a car and ar­son.

He had pleaded not guilty to the three of­fences but pleaded guilty to a charge of han­dling stolen goods.

The case was ad­journed for a pre-sen­tence re­port and the lad was re­manded in cus­tody, to ap­pear be­fore mag­is­trates on March 5.
