Bradford man and Silsden woman avoid jail after admitting spate of burglaries at commercial premises


A MAN and woman from the Bradford area took part in a spate of planned burglaries at commercial premises around Skipton, a court heard.

Lewis Kenway, 23, of Kelvin House, Holme Wood, pleaded guilty to four burglaries, which took place in a two-week period in May last year.

Lucy Garrod, 29, of New Lane, Silsden, admitted three of the burglaries.

Prosecutor Katy Rafter told Bradford Crown Court there had been significant financial loss and damage caused.


Miss Rafter said the first burglary took place at Carrs Billington Agriculture, in Gargrave Road, Skipton, in the early hours of May 2.

The intruders had broken in through a first floor window, searched the office and stole a cash box containing Bank Holiday weekend takings of £1,169.

The second raid, which involved Kenway on his own, was at Skipton Hire Centre, in Carleton New Road, on May 6. A cash box containing £200 was stolen.

The court heard that Garrod's Vauxhall Astra, containing the defendants and another man, was used on a "reconnaissance mission" before the third burglary, at Naylor Myers building suppliers on the Snaygill industrial estate in Skipton.
