Barrow man admits six burglaries and motoring offences

A BARROW man has appeared in court charged with a series of burglary and motoring offences.

Jamie Hoare, 23, of Ferry Road, pleaded guilty to four burglaries, aggravated vehicle taking, driving whilst disqualified, driving without insurance and drink driving when he appeared at Furness Magistrates’ Court on Saturday morning.

He also asked for two additional offences of burglary to be taken into account.

The court heard that Hoare had burgled three Barrow Island homes on Wednesday February 12 and taken items including car keys, cash and cigarettes.

He was also charged with taking a Vauxhall Agila on the same day and driving it while over the legal limit for alcohol, whilst disqualified from driving and without insurance.

Mrs Vicky Atkinson, prosecuting, said Hoare later admitted to three additional burglaries from Barrow homes when he was interviewed by police.

Ms Maureen Fawcett, defending, said: “He has helped the police significantly over the last few days.

“He has cooperated fully with officers and given full accounts.”

Hoare will appear for sentencing at Preston Crown Court on Febraury 28.

Mrs Sue Leitch, the presiding magistrate, said Hoare would be remanded in custody until then due to the nature of the offences.
