West Cumbrian pair jailed for burgling house

Two men have been jailed for 16 months each for burgling a house in Workington.

George Stephenson, 38, of St Mary’s Court in Workington and Alan Kendrick, 37, of Brisco Mount in Egremont, both pleaded guilty to breaking into an address in Shore Road in June.

While inside they made a thorough search of the home and stole a number of items including £450 in cash and a 32in television.

Stephenson also admitted to breaking into a garage in Bank Road and stealing four chainsaws as well as a wheelie bin to carry his haul away.

Judge Peter Hughes QC sentenced him to an extra jail term of eight months and said it brought his total sentence to two years.

The judge described the garage break in as “opportunistic” but added that the crime committed by the pair in Shore Road involved a search of a number of rooms.

He said that the cash would have had a “significant” value to the victim and added: “She has suffered significantly as a result of its loss.”
