Man accused of £30,000 burglary

Court case

Court case

A 34-year-old accused of involvement in a Deeping St James burglary, in which £30,000 worth of goods were stolen, will appear before Lincoln Crown Court.

James Morgan, of West End Road, Maxey, Peterborough, appeared in court on Monday, but he did not enter a plea to the burglary charge he is facing.

The charge says that on March 21 last year he entered a Deeping St James dwelling as a trespasser, and stole therein sunglasses, watches, cash, a safe, a laundry basket, a Vivienne Westwood jacket, a passport, a holdall and keys to a Range Rover.

In total the items are valued at around £30,000.

Grantham magistrates deemed the case unsuitable to be heard by them, and sent it up to Lincoln Crown Court where Morgan is now due to appear on June 6. He is expected to enter a plea to the charge at a crown court hearing.

Magistrates granted Morgan bail until the next court hearing.
