Jail sentence for prolific Limerick burglar

Newcastle West District Court.

A JUDGE jailed a burglar for two months this week after he pleaded guilty to breaking in to a house in Newcastle West and stealing €1,320 worth of property.

Gardai charged Marin Willezwski from Templegreen in Newcastle West after finding his fingerprints at the scene of the crime in a house in Churchtown.

Mr Willezwski admitted burgling the house on September 30 and stealing a laptop computer, PlayStation equipment and three watches to the value of €1,320.

The District Court sitting in Newcastle West on Friday was told that none of the property had been recovered.

Prosecuting Garda Inspector Gearoid Thompson told the court that Mr Willezwski is currently serving a two year sentence “for similar matters” and described him as a “prolific burglar”. However, he added that he had co-operated fully with Gardaí.
