A TEENAGE burglar who targeted a bungalow partly renovated, garages and outbuildings in his home village was bailed to await sentence yesterday.

Harrogate magistrates called for probation reports to be prepared on Simon Woodhouse, 18, of Springwell Farm, Church Street, Kirk Hammerton, near York, and he will return to court on December 20.

Woodhouse pleaded guilty to burgling Westoaks, a partly-renovated bungalow in Main Street, Kirk Hammerton and taking a stone cutter, an angle grinder and a jigsaw worth a total of £560. He also admitted burglary of an out-building at Close House, also in Main Street, and taking tools valued at £780.

Woodhouse asked for seven more burglaries of garages and outbuildings, to be taken into consideration.
