Burglar asks to be jailed in time for Christmas lunch in prison

A “DYED in the wool” burglar who hid behind the chair of an 80 year-old disabled man before stealing from his home is back behind bars.

Jason McIlvenny, 45, told Bradford Crown Court he had spent 26 out of the last 30 years in jail, and the court heard he was on-licence from prison when he committed two further burglaries in August.

He told the Recorder of Bradford, Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC, that he was “ashamed” of his record, but the judge said he was more concerned about getting back to the prison canteen for his lunch than showing remorse for his crimes.


Prosecutor Ben Campbell said that on August 7, 80 year-old Frank Bartle, who requires oxygen for chronic lung disease, was sat watching TV in his front room on Brownroyd Hill Road, Wibsey, Bradford, when he heard a noise.

McIlvenny was hiding behind his chair, and when Mr Bartle got up to confront him, asking “what’s your game”, he told him he had seen a mobility scooter outside and wanted advice on buying one.

After the defendant had left, Mr Bartle studied his CCTV and saw that McIlvenny had stolen items including a tablet, sunglasses, and some letters.
