Last Friday nineteen year-old Steven Sibley was sentenced to three years and three months in a Young Offenders’ Institute having pleaded guilty at Lewis Crown Court to a string of offences including burglary, aggravated burglary, fraud and theft.
The victims of one of the burglaries was the family of one of Sibley’s friends. That burglary occurred the day after a family meal, to which Sibley had been invited. The following day various expensive items were missing, including laptops, a television and an iPod. Fingerprints on a bedroom window traced Sibley to the scene. He was later found to have cashed a cheque for £250 from a chequebook found in the home.
