Wisbech man remanded after admitting his role in supermarket burglaries

A WISBECH man is to be sentenced at Crown Court after he admitted to his part in two supermarket raids in West Norfolk.

Scott Dale, 22, of Chase Street, admitted to being involved in robberies at Budgens in Dersingham and at Tesco Express, Heacham, both carried out in the early hours of April 19.

Dale was arrested following a high speed police chase in which a Honda reached speeds of up to 110 mph before it crashed and Dale was among those arrested.

Kings Lynn magistrates were told Dale was found hiding by police sniffer dogs some 100 metres from the scene of the crash.

The court heard that Dale had 24 previous convictions since 2005 and had been jailed only as recently as last May.

Sending him to crown court for sentencing on two counts of burglary the magistrates refused a plea by his solicitor to have him released on bail to his home address with an electronic tag and a dusk to dawn curfew.

Two others arrested in connection with the supermarket raids are being dealt with by the courts.
