Jail time for car break-ins
WARWICK man Blake Shane Halcrow will spend Christmas behind bars after committing a spate of car break-ins in September.
Halcrow was one of the men who hit eight Warwick vehicles in one evening, generating a booty made up of mp3 players, cash, GPS devices and sunglasses.
He pleaded guilty in the Warwick Magistrates Court last week to nine counts of break and enter and one of entering a premises with intent.
Police prosecutor Ken Wiggan said Halcrow admitted involvement in the crimes when spoken to by police.
"He said he and his friends went out specifically to break into cars," he said.
It is understood the vehicles were all parked in the Pratten and Gore St areas.
Magistrate Graham Lee sentenced Halcrow to nine months jail.
The 21-year-old will be able to apply for parole on January 13.
Halcrow's alleged co-offender Michael John Morgan is due to appear in the same court tomorrow.
