Warrington motorbike thief jailed
9:00am Tuesday 19th March 2013 in News
A 22-YEAR-OLD man has been jailed after stealing a motorbike worth £3,200.
Callum Whitehead, of James Lee House, Brick Street, got into a couple’s home on Elaine Street after spotting their bathroom window was open in January.
He took a laptop, which was later recovered, and the keys to the Kawasaki bike, which he said he had parked behind a church but when he returned it had been stolen.
Anna Pope, prosecuting, said Whitehead had a number of motoring offences and it was the fifth time he had been caught driving while disqualified.
He was caught by police after leaving finger prints on the bathroom window frame.
John Banasco, defending, said Whitehead had lacked stability in his life.
Judge Simon Killeen added: “You have been directionless but also going in entirely the wrong direction.”
He was jailed for 12 months and disqualified from driving for 18 months.
