Thief steals rings from girlfriend’s granny
A HEARTLESS thief stole over two-thousand pounds worth of jewellery from a St Neots grandmother.
Luke Grantham, 19, of Stonehill Road, St Neots, pleaded guilty at Huntingdon Magistrates Court to robbing his girlfriend’s grandmother of five gold rings and a �50 Dixons voucher.
He pinched the valuables between October and December last year whilst making regular visits to xx-year-old Julia Arnold’s house in The Broadwalk, Eynesbury.
He then attempted to sell the rings to family and friends before they were eventually bought by a St Neots jeweller for �150, where they were melted down, the court was told.
The 19-year-old was already on a conditional discharge for theft when he committed the crimes.
Presiding magistrate Stephen Barley said that owing to the severity of the case, he did not have the power to hand out an appropriate punishment.
He committed the case to Peterborough Crown Court for sentencing at a date to be decided.
