Drug teen jailed for chicken theft

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEEN bur­glar high on drugs who stole a FROZEN CHICKEN from a house has been locked up.

Ian Dodds, 19, was un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol and drugs when he car­ried out the raid in Jan­uary.

A court heard he was al­ready on bail for two other bur­glar­ies car­ried out last year.

He’d ad­mit­ted three charges of bur­glary at an ear­lier hear­ing.

At Teesside Crown Court the pros­e­cu­tion said the vic­tims in both the dwelling bur­glar­ies had been at home when the of­fences were com­mit­ted.

Dodds was sen­tenced to 12 months in a young of­fend­ers’ in­sti­tu­tion for each of house­break-in, to run con­sec­u­tively.

A con­cur­rent 12-week sen­tence was also handed the Mid­dles­bor­ough man for a garage bur­glary.
