Keighley man jailed for handling stolen goods
7:00am Thursday 3rd January 2013 in News
A 21-year-old man has been jailed for eight months for handling goods stolen in a £14,000 house burglary.
Hardingham pleaded guilty to dishonestly handling cigarettes, jewellery and electrical goods raided from a house in Coronation Way, Keighley, on October 12.
Prosecutor Duncan Ritchie said the burglary haul included 420 packets of cigarettes valued at £12,000, a £500 TV set, £1,000 worth of jewellery and a laptop computer.
Mr Ritchie said he believed the burgled householder was a trader who sold items at car boot sales.
The court heard that Hardingham was easily led and had found the spell in custody on remand “a difficult and sobering experience.”
