Suffolk man denies ransacking woman’s flat and stealing underwear

A man has denied stealing underwear and other clothing from a woman’s flat in Ipswich.

Joe Vincent appeared in custody at Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on Monday – via video link from Martlesham police investigation centre.

The 33-year-old pleaded not guilty to burgling a flat in Orwell Court on Friday, September 7.

Vincent, who gave the court his father’s address, in Ferry Road, Sudbourne, is also accused of damaging make-up, cosmetics, bedding, carpets and floorboards at the flat, and making off without paying a £58.20 taxi fare in Orford on the same date.

Prosecutor Tess Mann asked magistrates to decline jurisdiction and send the case to crown court for trial.
