Portuguese interpreter needed before burglar is sentenced
HAREFIELD: A serial burglar who was due to be sentenced last week must wait to hear his fate.
Paulo Santos, 45, of Dovedale Close, Harefield, had admitted trespass and burglary charges, in relation to break-ins at houses, garages and offices in Harefield, Northwood and Rickmansworth.
He was convicted of stealing laptops and gardening equipment.
The sentencing, which was set for Isleworth Crown Court on Friday last week, was adjourned because details of all the charges were not available, and because a Portuguese interpreter was required.
Santos was given bail on condition he observes a night-time curfew.
