Moreton man could face jail for burglaries
9:33am Saturday 8th March 2014 in News
A MAN from Moreton who has admitted two burglaries in his home town was warned by a judge that he is facing jail.
Alan Bellow, aged 34, of Stow Road, was due to be sentenced at Gloucester crown court on Thursday for breaking into a house in Redesdale Place and an outbuilding at Manor House Hotel.
But because a psychiatric report which had been ordered on Belllow had not been prepared Judge William Hart agreed to delay sentence for two weeks.
He bailed Bellow until Wednesday, March 26, warning him "I suspect the likely outcome is that you will get a prison sentence."
Bellow had been committed to the crown court to be sentenced after pleading guilty to breaking into an occupied house in Redesdale Place on October 22 last year and stealing a laptop computer, jacket, Sony organiser, cash tins and cash of an unknown value.
He also admitted burglary on the same day of the hotel outbuilding.
The court heard that two other people had been involved with him - one, Bradley Jones, has received a community order for taking part in the outbuilding raid.
The other, a 15 year old boy, has been sent to the youth court to be tried.
Bellow has a previous conviction for burglary, Judge Hart was told.
