Kessingland man admits Pontin’s holiday park burglary

A 25-YEAR-OLD man who stole tools worth �450 from Pontin's Pakefield holiday park has been fined �100.

Karl Taylor, of Romany Lane, Kessingland, took the tools in an opportunistic theft after he had been drinking.

Appearing at Lowestoft Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, he admitted burgling a greenhouse at the camp on January 8.

Colette Griffiths, prosecuting, said he was spotted with a petrol strimmer and chemical sprayer by a security manager.

Taylor, an unemployed labourer, dropped the tools and then ran into a nearby field by the A12.

A police dog tracked him down to a ditch under hedge and he was arrested.

Taylor later admitted to police he had drunk nine beers before going into the park where he noticed the greenhouse was insecure.
