Local Man Jailed for Burglary


In the Magistrates’ Court yesterday (23 March 2023), a local man was jailed for 15 weeks after pleading guilty to a charge of Burglary.


At around 6am on the morning of 4 June last year, a member of the public alerted the RGP Control Room to the sound of breaking glass at a bar in Main Street.


Officers responded immediately and found Riyen LEA, 35, inside the bar where he was attempting to break into a gaming machine with a crowbar.


He was arrested and taken to New Mole House where he was charged with Burglary.


He will now serve a prison term of 15 weeks which will be added to the sentence he is already serving.
