An elderly couple who took pity on a career criminal have told how he repaid them - by burgling their home.D'oh!
But was there any indication he'd be a hopeless recidivist?
Duncan, a 33-year-old drug addict, took coins from a money box and also stole a Tiffany necklace and earrings.
He was jailed for three years at Teesside Crown Court for burglary and a New Years Eve robbery with his partner.Ah.
His lawyer, John Nixon, said: “He expresses an apology to the family through me.”Are you just reading that off a cue card?
