First published in News

A MAN depressed and hard-up at Christmas raided a car showroom looking for copper wiring in the early hours of Boxing Day, a court heard.

Jason Derek Hardacre, 40, of Bread Street, Burnley, was found hiding in Lookers, in Barracks Road, Burnley, armed with a torch, two screwdrivers and secateurs, the town’s crown court was told.

Hardacre, a former drug user, was said to have no family living locally, and his benefits had been cut.

He admitted burglary with intent to steal, and was sentenced to a community order, with unpaid work.
