Man admits buglary in Devizes
A man who carried out a string of burglaries has been remanded in custody by a judge.
Peter Barber stole jewellery and other items when he raided a house in Devizes during the first week of July.
The 58-year-old also burgled houses in Bradford on Avon and Bath along with 19 other break ins.
Barber, of Pontlliw, Swansea, pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary and asked for 19 further offences to be taken into consideration.
He made off with jewellery and other household effects from the burglary at a house on Greenfield Road, Devizes, between June 30 and July 10.
The thief also took jewellery from a house in Palairet Close, Bradford on Avon, in late May or early June.
A few weeks earlier he took military medals, jewellery and other items from a raid on a house in Court Gardens, Bath.
Alex Daymond, defending, said though his client had been remanded in custody he was currently staying in a mental health clinic.
He asked for the case to be adjourned to allow time for a psychiatric report as well as a pre-sentence report.
Judge Douglas Field remanded him in custody to Friday November 2 when he is due to face sentence.
