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.
