Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

A MAN who has denied breaking into a house has been remanded in custody after being denied bail.

Liam John Sebastian Hodgson, 33, of Frederick Street, Goldthorpe, is due to be committed to Sheffield Crown Court on July 2.

His solicitor Philip Howard's application for bail with stringent conditions, including reporting to the police three times a week and a curfew, was turned down at Barnsley Magistrates' Court by District Judge John Foster.

Hodgson has admitted handling a stolen copper water tank and pipes and will be committed to crown court for sentencing on the same date.

Dave, He will have a string of previous and might even be on a suspended sentence. Committed to crown for a bit of copper as Jade has already said, it speaks volumes.

" Its only going to get worse, the new government cuts on benefits will only drive people to seek money wherever they can find it ", I was burgled last weekend to the tune of about two n' half grand but the thieving **** that stole my gear will sell the stuff for pennies, and all the Police can tell me is the statement Quoted above, they know who they are to within a handful of people all doin the same thing, but without proof are powerless to act, so on they will go thieving and making it very hard for people who do work to do so without the tools they need cos drug infested scrotes are allowed back onto the streets time and time again, so yeah, hang the bastards, if you can catch em first.
