Man bailed over stolen mobile phones

A man found with mobile phones that were stolen during a burglary in Douglas Town Centre has been granted bail.

At Douglas Courthouse this week, Lee Simon Crawley of Derby Road in Douglas pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods.

The court heard the 42 year old's home was searched by police in March, four days after Ali's Electrical Centre in Castle Street was broken into.

Four mobile phones, worth £910, were found hidden in a beanbag and Crawley's oven.

Barry Swain, prosecuting, said the phones were inspected by police officers and identified by their IMEI numbers.

He told the court there'd been some effort to hide them and said Crawley had an extensive record of previous offences.

Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes adjourned the case to a date to be fixed.

Crawley was bailed until his next appearance.
