Man Jailed For Burgling A Scarborough Restaurant

Man Jailed For Burgling A Scarborough Restaurant

Published by Karen Liu at 12:30pm 15th July 2019. (Updated at 5:28pm 15th July 2019)

A man has been sent to prison for a total of 24 weeks after the burglary of a Scarborough restaurant.

Adrian Wilkie, 23, of no fixed address, appeared at York Magistrates Court last Friday (12th July).

He pleaded guilty to breaking into El Gringo’s restaurant on Sunday 7 July 2019, and stealing takings from the till.

Wilkie was sent to jail for 12 weeks and has been ordered to pay a victim surcharge of £122.

In addition, he breached a community order after three previous shop thefts and was given a further 12 weeks in jail. 

Another man also appeared at court and pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary and one count of attempted burglary of various commercial premises in Scarborough. He was remanded into custody for sentencing, but is soon to go on trial for a fourth burglary offence.

Speaking about the prison sentence handed to Wilkie, investigating officer Detective Constable Vicky Millington said:

“We’re pleased with the result and the fact that Wilkie has been given a custodial sentence, which reflects the disruption and upset he caused to the owners of El Gringo’s.

I hope this sentence sends a clear message to anyone who thinks they can target small businesses in Scarborough. Police are committed to pursuing and prosecuting you and putting you in front of the courts to ensure justice is done.

I would appeal to anyone who has been a victim of a commercial burglary to report it to police, so we can investigate and ensure the guilty parties are brought to justice.”
