Man admits robbery bid at Workington shop

A man has admitted trying to rob a shop in Workington.

Dean Weston, 20, of Ennerdale Road, Cleator Moor, was charged after an incident at the Co-op in Harrington Road, Workington, on July 17 last year.

At Carlisle Crown Court he pleaded guilty to a charge of attempting to rob the shop of cash.

No details of the incident were given in court, but prosecutor Gerard Rogerson described it as “very grave”.

Watson, who is already in prison after being recalled to finish a sentence imposed two months after the attempted robbery, was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on October 1.

Judge Barbara Forrester said she needed pre-sentence reports from the Probation Service, especially taking into account his previous criminal record.
