THREE burglars “caught in the act” of late night criminal conduct in Kendal will be sentenced next month.
John Alan Peart, 44, Billy-joe Young, 33, and 35-year-old David Martin Ainsworth appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today (THURS).
All three men admitted a charge of burglary which states that they entered Kendal’s Triple D Motorsport as trespassers, with intent to steal, between June 28 and July 1 this year.
It follows a late night incident on the town’s Mintsfeet industrial estate.
Prosecutor Beccy McGregor told the court the trio had been found close to the commercial premises at 2am, and “effectively caught in the act”.
Pre-sentence reports were ordered for all three men, who are due to be sentenced at the crown court on November 8.
In the meantime Peart, of Moscow Mill Street, and Young, of Union Road, both Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire, were granted bail.
Ainsworth, of Heys Street, Haslingden, Rossendale, was remanded in custody.
