Lollipop theft teenager sentenced
A sweet-toothed teenage burglar who stole more than 100 lollipops from a Mundesley cafe has been given a 12-month youth rehabilitation order.
Grant Brett was sentenced on Thursday at Great Yarmouth Magistrates' Court after he had previously been convicted of burgling the Beach Cafe on Mundesley seafront in May.
The earlier hearing at Cromer Magistrates' Court heard when police went to Brett's home they found 20 sweet wrappers under his bed at the care home he lived at.
Brett, 18, of Market Row, Yarmouth, had broken into the cafe twice in the space of two days and took the lollipops during the second burglary.
Brett's saliva had been found on a go-karting medallion left at the scene.

His solicitor Kevin Batch said he would be appealing against his client's conviction by Cromer magistrates as Brett had been interviewed by police without an appropriate adult when he admitted the two burglaries.
