Man admits stealing gold and cash in Guineas burglary

A Newmarket man has pleaded guilty to carrying out a burglary at a shopping centre.

Luke Sheppard, 27, of Frampton Close, appeared on Friday, December 21 at Ipswich Crown Court.

He pleaded guilty to burglary in The Guineas shopping centre on January 21 stealing gold and cash.

He also admitted a second charge of burglary at the same location on February 6 with intent to steal.

Judge John Devaux told Sheppard that he would continue to be granted bail until he is sentenced later this month.

Also appearing in court was thirty-four-year-old Julie Collins, of Frampton Close, Newmarket, who pleaded not guilty to a charge of using gold and cash between January 21 and February 7 knowing them to be stolen. The Crown Prosecution Service is to decide whether a trial for Collins will be proceeded with.
