Carlisle man admits role in city house burglary

Carlisle Crown Court

A MAN has admitted involvement in a Carlisle house burglary in which a laptop and other property was stolen.

Sheldon Harley James O’Neil, 20, appeared at the city’s crown court today (TUES) having previously denied being involved in a break-in on September 7 last year.

But over a video link from custody, O’Neil changed his plea and admitted a burglary charge. This states that he entered a dwelling at Dunmallet Rigg as a trespasser and stole a laptop, cash box and tool box.

The court heard O’Neil, of Bousteads Grassing, Carlisle, had been out of trouble for 15 months before the break-in occurred. He has also admitted possession of a bladed article during a separate incident in the city on November 2.

O’Neil’s case was adjourned by Judge Peter Davies, who ordered the preparation of a probation service pre-sentence report.

O’Neil was remanded in custody, and is due to be sentenced at the crown court on a future date.
