Catherine Allan, prosecuting, said the teenage boy was making his way to bed when he heard his younger sister call out.
He went into her room and saw the girl standing near the window.
"He also thought it was his older sister, who wasn't meant to be in the house at the time, and tapped her on the shoulder," said Miss Allan.
"He had to do this a number of times before she turned round and he realised it was the defendant who lives across the road."
Miss Allan said that when the boy escorted the defendant downstairs he realised the front door was locked and asked how she had got into the house.
"She told him she had climbed in through the bathroom window and he later found it was open," said Miss Allan.
"He also found his iPhone was missing and contacted the police."
How very strange! Not your usual burglary, is it? Why would the lad not recognise this girl wasn't his sister?
When officers went to speak to the girl she initially denied taking the phone. She said the other family were lying and Allah was watching.
She then admitted the theft and directed the officers to a cupboard where it was hidden.
The world's most inept burglary?
Simon Farnsworth, defending, said the girl had been brought to the UK to live with her father who she hadn't seen for a number of years.
"She found it difficult to integrate with Western society and that resulted in self-harm and anti-social behaviour," said Mr Farnsworth.
"She has been falling out with her parents over such things as marriage."
Well, this clearly has an easy solution. Deport her.
What? Deport this gift to lazy police, dim crown prosecutors and greedy lawyers?
MTG, don't forget the myriad hangers on and other assorted rent seekers supported by these people.
Just a cotton-picking moment, Andrew. Are you suggesting that all seven of the genuine taxpayers in my home town...are being screwed?
OMG he's back............he's been released.....or he's escaped..........Jaded
"What? Deport this gift to lazy police, dim crown prosecutors and greedy lawyers?"
Yup! Starve the beast. You know it makes sense.
"OMG he's back............he's been released.....or he's escaped...."
Maybe a nice, long holiday overseas?
If it be true that WPC Jaded has been released or escaped, a treat is in store for all freshers to English. That 'lightening' wit can be relied upon to spew a daily issue of Beano crudities and hogwash grammar, into cyberspace.
1,2,3 we're back in the room. Luckily I have google translate Melvin. Still writing to the Daily Mail?
'Still writing to the Daily Mail?'
I really couldn't contemplate a time when I would intentionally neglect my duties as a citizen, Jaded. I noticed that the Mail did publish numerous comments from a plod source using the pseudonym 'Lady of Shalott'. Her offerings included all of your usual grammatical and spelling mistakes, whilst mirroring your unique linguistic 'style'. Even more significant was the contributor's total ignorance of the Tennyson character. So I could not rule out the possibility....
How very culturally insensitive of you, Julia.
Isn't amputation of the right hand the preferred corrective?
