Kevin Wyatt, 29, from King Street, was sentenced to 294 days in prison following the incident on Sunday November 3.

During the burglary, at Dalton Football Club, Beckside Road, a large amount of alcohol, laptop computers and an LG television were stolen.

Damage was caused in several areas of the building, and a large amount of coins were taken including a British Legion Poppy Appeal collection tin and donations towards a children’s Christmas party.

Wyatt was charged with handling stolen goods along with other charges of Burglary, Handling Stolen Goods and Fraud after his arrest on Wednesday November 13. 

He was remanded in custody and appeared at Furness Magistrates Court today (Thursday) where he pleaded guilty.

DC Woods of Barrow CID said:“We would like to thank the community of Dalton for assisting the police in this investigation. We are still keen to recover the stolen LG television and laptop computers and appeal to members of the public to contact us if they have any knowledge of these items.

“If you have any information which may assist then please contact DC Woods in Barrow CID by calling 101, or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

*Two juveniles ages 16 and 17 years old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were arrested on suspicion of burglary on November 9. Both males answered bail today and were charged in connection with the burglary. They will now appear at Furness & District Youth Court on November 29.

Have your say

The 16 and 17 year old are nothing to do with the burglary at Dalton. They were arrested for a burglary on the 9th Nov at a house in Barrow.

The 16 & 17 year old who committed the crime and will do so again will probably get suspended sentences. They should at least get the same as the guy who sold it on. Just because they are 16 & 17 they should not get off with it. I think it is about time that juveniles should either be put in detention centers or offered to go into the forces send them to Afghanistan for a year if they return they will become men and respected.
