An Ipswich burglar will be sentenced next month after going on a “drive round” with police to identify other properties he has broken into.

Before Ipswich Crown Court today (Tuesday) was Vasile-Gabriel Calici, 19, of Yeoman Close, Ipswich who has admitted burglary at a property in The Crescent Barham on January 22 and two offences of driving without insurance and without a driving licence.

He was due to be sentenced today but Daniel Taylor, prosecuting, asked the court to adjourn the case until after February 26 when Calici had agreed to go in a drive around with police officers in the hope of identifying other premises he had broken into.

Oliver Haswell, for Calici, said his client had come to the UK from Romania seven months ago for work.

He said Calici had no previous convictions in this country and claimed he didn’t have any in Romania either.

“He understands the benefits of assisting the police and he will be as helpful as his involvement in other matters will permit him to be,” said Mr Haswell.
