Man to be sen­tenced for three bur­glar­ies

Halifax Courier - - Yourcourier -

A 38-year-old man has ad­mit­ted to com­mit­ting three bur­glar­ies in the Heb­den Bridge area on Au­gust 22 and 26.

James Har­ri­son, of no fixed abode, stole hun­dreds of pounds worth of goods from three prop­er­ties in the town in­clud­ing a lap­top com­puter, jew­ellery, a phone, a bot­tle of whiskey and three bot­tles of beer.

Pros­e­cu­tor Lisa Bea­dle said that he broke into a prop­erty at Coin­ers Wharf Mytholm­royd, while the 79-year-old woman who lived at the prop­erty was in the next room.

Har­ri­son was seen by a num­ber of wit­nesses fol­low­ing the day­time thefts, and his fin­ger­prints were found on the stolen items.

He tested pos­i­tive for opi­ates and co­caine upon ar­rest and gave no com­ment to po­lice when asked about the thefts.

Chair of Mag­is­trates Sam Shi­bil told Har­ri­son: “Our power won’t be enough to pun­ish you. You have com­mit­ted se­ri­ous of­fences and you will be sen­tenced at Brad­ford Crown Court.” Har­ri­son was re­manded in cus­tody and will ap­pear for sen­tenc­ing at Brad­ford Crown Court on Septem­ber 25.
