Teenage burglars caught pretending to be asleep


Three teenage burglars have been jailed after they were caught undressed and pretending to be asleep when officers caught up with them.

Bredforshire police received reports that four teens were acting suspicious on June 15th.

When officers gained access to the house they found Mark Boyce, Patrick Casey, Seth Lee and a 16-year-old boy pretending to be asleep alongside a large amount of stolen jewellery.

Although they were found sharing two beds, they denied knowing each other or having any involvement in the burglary.

Lee, 19, was sentenced to three years and four months in prison at Luton Crown Court.

Casey, 19, was handed a two-year jail term, while Boyce, also 19, was sentenced to one year and 10 months.
