TWO teenagers have admitted stealing a Jaguar car from an address in Horwich.

Appearing at Bolton Crown Court via video link from HMP Doncaster, Kieran Neal, 18, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to charges of burglary and aggravated vehicle-taking following the incident at a property on Ansdell Road on August 12, 2019.

Also appearing at Bolton Crown Court, where he pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated vehicle-taking was a 16-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

The younger teenager, who was aged 15 at the time of the offence, denied a charge of burglary which was accepted by the Crown Prosecution Service.

Brian Berlyne, prosecuting, said there was CCTV footage taken at a petrol station within an hour of the offence which showed Neal as the driver of a Jaguar, but did not show the 16-year-old, suggesting he did not take part in the burglary where the car’s keys were taken.

Judge Martin Walsh remitted the 16-year-old’s case to Thameside Youth Court where he will be sentenced on July 7.

He was released on unconditional bail.

Neal’s case will be transferred to Bradford Crown Court where he will also be sentenced on July 27 for separate matters including dangerous driving, fraud and driving while disqualified. He was remanded in custody.
