Teenaged Accrington burglar claimed he was looking for cannabis
9:38am Monday 23rd July 2012 in Accrington
A TEENAGER who broke into an Accrington house claimed he was looking for cannabis.
Blackburn magistrates heard the radiators and copper piping had been ripped out of the house causing extensive damage.
But they were also told that three days previously the owner had taken police into the house where they discovered a cannabis farm Chaz Michael Sharman, 18, of Lydia Street, Accrington, pleaded guilty to burglary with intent to steal.
He was remanded on bail by the court for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
Gareth Price, defending, said the police discovery in the rented house supported his client’s story about looking for cannabis.
“He has said all along that he had nothing to do with the copper piping or radiators,” said Mr Price
