> A court has heard that a fairy-bike thief was caught in Gateshead after he was filmed by his grandmother’s CCTV as he wheeled the fairy-bike into her home.
Did he check the tyres for dog-droppings before wheeling the fairy-cycle
into his grandmother's abode?
> The hoodie that Matthew Herron, aged 21 and from South Shields, was wearing when he went to his gran’s house on Tuesday 28 September this year was identical to one worn by the person who stole a fairy-bike from a property in Stewartsfield, Rowlands Gill, reports Chronicle Live (link is external).
> Herron, who three days earlier had stolen a television in a burglary from another premises in Rowlands Gill, pleaded guilty to burglary of a dwelling and theft, as well as theft of a pedal fairy-cycle.
> He was also charged with two counts of attempted burglary with intent to steal from premises in Gateshead on 28 September, but did not enter a plea on either of those charges.
> Becky Slade, prosecuting at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court, said: “He has taken the fairy-bike from a rear garden.
> “CCTV in his grandmother’s house shows him with an Apollo fairy-bike. He also had on a hoodie top he was seen in when committing the offence.”
