Burglar jailed for 'astonishing' six-month crime spree

A PROLIFIC burglar who stole high value cars has been jailed for six-and-a-half years.

Dale Melia, 24, of Grantham Street, Coventry, pleaded guilty at Warwickshire Crown Court to 28 counts of burglary, six counts of theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of attempted burglary, one count of driving while disqualified and one count of driving without insurance.

Melia stole 19 high-value vehicles including BMWs and Mercedes in Warwickshire, Leicestershire, West Midlands and Staffordshire between October and March. More »

Melia targeted cars in SHARNFORD, Leamington, Rugby, Warwick, Kenilworth, Southam, Ash Green, Nuneaton, Bedworth, Hatton and Bulkington.

Melia was arrested in Coventry following a police appeal, after forensic evidence linked him to some of the thefts.

Det Con Tim O'Mahoney, from Warwickshire Police, said: "The scale of Melia's offending was astonishing and there is no doubt our communities are safer with him in prison.

"Following a thorough investigation and support from the public Melia's crimes finally caught up with him and he is now behind bars facing the consequences of his actions." » Less

New Playground on The Park now open

The new playground equipment has now been installed on The Park. Andy, from the developer Brampton Valley Homes, officially opened the playground, which proved to be a draw for the many children attending the Fete.

The new play equipment on Poors Meadow, including accessible exercise equipment for all ages and abilities, is now being installed.

The cost of all equipment is in excess of £54,000 with the majority of funding coming from Brampton Valley Homes through the S106 scheme. Remaining funding was made up from previous S106 money and Parish Council funds set aside for play equipment.

Sharnford Fete a resounding success

Sharnford Fete a resounding success

Sharnford Fete was a resounding success on a dry Sunday afternoon. The theme 'SPACE' gave plenty of opportunity for both children and adults to go mad with their fancy-dress. The barbecue, always a favourite, manged to sell every burger.

A big thank you to the Fete Committee for organising a brilliant show.
