Stupid Case File for January 26, 2007

Fingerprints ...

Malcolm McAdam left fingerprints behind in one burglary and blood at the scene of two others.
At the time of the offences in October last year he was free on licence from prison after six-and-a -half year sentence for robbery.

Tim Storrie, prosecuting, said the first burglary took place on October 1 at a club function room on Chatsworth Street, Blackpool.

Shutter doors were forced, three bottles of vodka taken and money stolen.

McAdam, 38, of no fixed address, was linked to the burglary after leaving fingerprints behind.
The following day a house on Watson Road was burgled while the homeowners were out. Property worth £800 was taken including jewellery and a designer jacket.
On October 3 McAdam then attempted to raid a fashion shop on Whitegate Drive. Damage to the tune of £250 was caused.

In both crimes he left blood at the scene. Michael Hayton, defending, said McAdam had a long-standing heroin addiction and spent a large proportion of his life in custody. He was currently drug free and was motivated to change. "The offences were opportunistic, rather bundled and amateurish leaving behind fingerprints and blood," said Mr Hayton.
Judge Robert Brown sentenced McAdam to three years jail to start at the conclusion of the sentence he is presently serving.
