Have your say

A SUNDERLAND man has been jailed for his part in a burglary.

Tony Ash, of Toward Road, broke into the home in Mortimer Road, South Shields.

He raided the house on September 25 and stole a coat, alcohol and two mountain bikes. The householder was in at the time but didn’t realise they had been burgled until the next day.

Ash, 22, pleaded guilty to burglary at Newcastle Crown Court yesterday.

He was jailed for 12 months.
