Man told he faces prison after burglary at Redditch home
5:50pm Wednesday 25th September 2013 in News
A MAN caught handling stolen goods several times across the Midlands has been warned he faces a prison sentence.
Mark Toogood pleaded guilty at Worcester Crown Court to burglary of a home in Belbroughton Close, Redditch, on May 31, stealing electrical items and jewellery.
He also admitted to retaining, moving or disposing of stolen goods on two occasions, including a Yamaha guitar on June 20 and two laptops between June 5 and June 21.
Toogood, aged 27, of Stourbridge Road, Dudley, was remanded in custody to be sentenced on October 14, when he will also face sentence for other offences of handling stolen goods committed in the Black Country.
Recorder Davinder Lachhar told him that as this was his 'third strike' offence for burglary, a prison sentence would be likely to be imposed at the next hearing.
