Downham Market man caused £2,500 of damage to home
A Downham man will be sentenced at crown court for causing £2,500 worth of damage at a home in the town.
Ellis Holmes, 22, appeared before magistrates in Lynn on Thursday to plead guilty to damaging an oil tank pipe and other property in Stevens Crescent on February 26. The home belonged to Freebridge Community Housing.
Solicitor Andrew Cogan, mitigating, said his client admitted to the damage on a reckless basis – it had been caused when he had jumped over a fence in an effort to get £30 owed to him by a man.
Holmes, of The Drove, was committed to Norwich Crown Court for sentencing on a date to be fixed.
He was released on bail with conditions not to go to Stevens Crescent and not to contact June Connell-Shaw.
