Surrey teenaged sentenced after a string of burglaries in Surrey
A Surrey teenager has been sentenced to 38 months in a young offenders’ institute after committing a string of burglaries.
Eighteen year old Shane Warburton, was sentenced on July 15th after he admitted to over 20 burglaries committed in the Molesey, Walton and Thames Ditton areas. It is estimated that he caused more than £50,000 worth of damage and loss, mostly to homes.
Three days before his sentence was handed down, the court heard that the defendant and a 22 year old accomplice were caught in the act of breaking into a home on Sidney Road by the owners, who walked in as they were in the process of loading stolen electrical items into the back of a stolen BMW.
The burglars got away with a number of items, including a laptop, camera, iPhones and iPods and a sum of money that was taken from the lady’s purse.
Two of the three burglars were caught when the police put a stinger into action, causing their stolen car to crash into a lamppost. The unknown third assailant managed to escape.
Warburton’s 22 year old accomplice, Mirush Kabashi, was also sentenced to 24 months in a young offenders’ institute.
