BURGLARS cruelly stole a young couple’s wedding presents while they were away on their honeymoon.
The couple were devastated to return to their home in Colwyn Bay to find that their wedding presents had been taken and their home ransacked.
It turned out that their next door neighbour had been using their stolen credit card, explained prosecutor Richard Edwards.
Suzanne Margaret Tyrer, aged 31, was caught on CCTV at a cash machine.
Tyrer, of Beal Avenue in Colwyn Bay, admitted a charge of handling stolen goods and two charges of attempted theft – by using the credit card.
Judge Niclas Parry, sitting at Mold Crown Court this afternoon, said that she had played her part “in a wicked, despicable offence.”
He told her: “Your neighbours, young people embarking on married life – off they go on their honeymoon.
“Into their home goes someone you know and the wedding presents are taken.
“This was a serious burglary.”
But she was not to be sentenced for that.
There was no evidence that she entered the property.
However, she was in possession of certain items taken in the burglary within a very short time.
The judge said that in such circumstances, the court took the view that there was little difference between a burglary and a handling charge.
