Community ‘will welcome sentence’ as teenager given two years for burglary

A local teenager has been sentenced to over two years in a youth offender institution after pleading guilty to a burglary at a home in Coedpoeth earlier this year.

Connor Birchall-Roberts, 18, targeted the property at Heol Offa, Coepoeth, on Friday May 25th 2018.

An ‘untidy search’ of the property was carried out and a number of bike helmets, gloves and jewellery were stolen from the home.

A forensic examination of the scene recovered blood left inside the property and identified the offender as Birhall-Roberts from Coedpoeth.

On Friday 10th August he pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced to 869 days (approximately two years and four months) in a Youth Offending Institution.

Inspector Steve Owens said: “I am very pleased with the custodial sentence. The fact that Birchall-Roberts committed this offence as an adult, having recently turned 18, has ensured it attracted an appropriate sentence.

“The community in and around the Coedpoeth area will welcome this sentence.

“North Wales Police will continue to pursue those causing the most harm, in line with the Police and Crime Commissioners priorities.”
