THREE Carlisle burglars were told by a judge that prison sentences are “highly probable” after they admitted a raft of offences.

Tyler Nunn, 21, Tjay Brian O’Neil, 27, and 25-year-old Dean Antony Smith entered guilty pleas to a range of offences when they appeared at the city’s crown court today (MON).

Nunn admitted offering to supply both cocaine and cannabis during September. He also admitted burgling Linton Tweeds, Shaddongate, Carlisle, on September 27 when items, including jewellery, were stolen; and the attempted burglary of a fish and chip shop at Scotch Street in the city centre on September 21.

O’Neil and Smith each admitted burgling Vaseys furniture store, Lancaster Street, and stealing two jackets containing personal belongings, on October 2. They also pleaded guilty to a fraud offence involving a bank card belonging to another male that day.

Both O’Neil and Smith also admitted a theft at the Walkabout bar, off Botchergate, on September 28, and causing damage to a gaming machine on that date. O’Neil further admitted the July 4 burglary of a dwelling at Barrock Street in Carlisle – a crime he had previously denied.

Recorder Kevin Grice adjourned the case. All three defendants are due to be sentenced at the crown court on December 3, and each was remanded in custody in the meantime.

Recorder Grice asked for background information, but told the trio, all of John Street, Carlisle: “It is highly probable that custodial sentences will be passed on all of you.”
