Man accused of handling stolen goods worth �16,800

A MAN accused of handling more than �16,000 worth of stolen goods - including a caravan and a trailer - is to have his case heard by a judge at Cambridge Crown Court.

Blossom Jacob Smith, 40, of Kirkham’s Lane, Friday Bridge, appeared before Fenland magistrates, who declined jurisdiction over the proceedings.

It is alleged that Smith handled a �10,000 Delta Nordstar caravan in Leicester between July 18 and September 12.

Other charges accuse Smith of handling stolen goods in Wisbech; a motorbike trailer worth �1,200; and seven double glazed windows and some lead flashing valued at �3,800.

Other charges allege that Smith handled a �600 red Yamaha scooter, four alloy wheels worth �400 and a black Vespa scooter valued at �800.

“Because there are multiple offences, and because of the high value of the property, we feel this case should be dealt with at Cambridge Crown Court,” said presiding magistrate Margaret Angood.

The case was adjourned for a committal hearing on November 30 and Smith was given unconditional bail.
