Man burgled un­cle’s home

Wilmslow Express - - NEWS - Stu­art Greer

AMAN who broke into his own un­cle’s home has been or­dered to com­plete 200 hours’ un­paid work.

James Ni­cholas Perry, 28, came to stay with his rel­a­tive John Kelly af­ter his wife died, a court heard.

But af­ter caus­ing ‘prob­lems’ dur­ing his stay Perry was kicked out of the prop­erty on Lime Walk in Wilm­slow.

Des­per­ate for money, Perry stole a spare key to the house in Wilm­slow be­fore re­turn­ing later to steal two tablet de­vices.

Perry, now of Barn­wood Road, Wythen­shawe, ad­mit­ted bur­glary at Macclesfield Mag­is­trates’ Court on April 8.

He also ad­mit­ted com­mit­ting an of­fence while a com­mu­nity or­der was in force.

Deb­bie Byrne, pros­e­cut­ing, said: “When the vic­tim’s wife passed away last year his sis­ter came over to look af­ter their el­derly mother who was living at the ad­dress.

“She came over from Amer­ica with her grand­son James Perry.

“They lived with the com­plainant from May 2014 and there had been some prob­lems with Perry.

“When the com­plainant’s sis­ter re­turned to Amer­ica the com­plainant asked Perry to leave the prop­erty.

“From time to time Perry would come back to col­lect his mail, usu­ally when the vic­tim’s son Paul was on his lunch.

“On March 26 John Kelly re­turned home to find that his son had seen Perry at the house to col­lect mail.

“He later dis­cov­ered a spare door key was miss­ing and a Sam­sung Galaxy tablet was miss­ing. He later found a Hu­dle tablet miss­ing.

“The goods were later found for sale at CEX byand-sell shop in Wilm­slow.

“In po­lice in­ter­view Perry said af­ter he was kicked out he broke into the house a few times to shower and have some food.

“He ad­mits tak­ing the spare key and later re­turn­ing to take the items.”

The court heard a vic­tim im­pact state­ment from Mr Kelly which said he had been forced to change his locks and ‘feared ret­ri­bu­tion’ from Perry.

The of­fence breached a com­mu­nity or­der given to Perry by South Cheshire Mag­is­trates’ court on Fe­bru­ary 11 for two of­fences of mak­ing off with­out pay­ment.

Mag­is­trates gave Perry 200 hours of un­paid work for the bur­glary and eight hours for the breach.

He must also pay Mr Kelly £46 com­pen­sa­tion.
