A BURGLAR responsible for raids at four houses in turned out to be a boy aged just 15.

The teenager burgled one house while the occupants were asleep in their beds.

On two occasions he stole car keys and took vehicles from the driveway outside, a youth court at Mold was told.

The boy admitted three houses burglaries in the Mold area, taking a vehicle and a charge of aggravated vehicle-taking.

He also asked for four others charges to be taken into consideration – burglary with intent to steal at a house, burglary at a domestic garage where he stole two cycles valued at £1,500 and two charges of taking vehicles.

Magistrates bailed him pending sentence next month.

He was warned that if he had been an adult, he would be facing a mandatory three-year prison sentence because of his previous convictions – which includes two previous house burglaries.

Alun Humphreys, prosecuting, said that in November, the youth burgled a house at Bron Afon in Mold when a mobile phone and other items were stolen.

The occupants were present but were not disturbed by the burglar who struck in the early hours.

In December, he burgled a house in West View, Mold, where a £100 bracelet which had been bought as a Christmas present and car keys were taken.

Then 10 days later he burgled a house in Ruthin Road where jewellery, including gold wedding and engagement rings, were taken. An untidy search of two of the rooms had taken place.

Victoria Evans, defending, said the boy had fully cooperated with the police, made full admissions and voluntarily admitted other offences which assisted the police to clear them up.

She said the magistrates’ court had sufficient powers to deal with him in the circumstances and magistrates agreed.

live at his home address where he must observe a tagged curfew.

He is not to associate with two other named youths and he is to co-operate with the youth justice service under a supervision and surveillance bail package.

The boy was warned that all options, including a detention and training order, would remain in place.
