Burglar 'trashed' house for revenge

Thursday, 7th December 2000.

A BURGLAR "trashed" a house in Haverhill as an act of revenge, a court heard.
Christopher Traynor, 21, of Polepark Road, Dundee, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for sentence on a charge of burglary.
Traynor, who was jailed for two years, admitted the offence on an earlier occasion.
Sentence has been postponed for a report from the Probation Service,
Peter Gair, prosecuting, said Traynor kicked down the door of the Castle Walk house - owned by a Mr Brown - on Near Year's Day.
Once inside, he smashed up property, including a stereo cabinet.
Mr Brown's neighbour saw Traynor force his way into the unoccupied house and called the police.
When officers arrived Traynor was arrested. ir was apparent he had been drinking, the court was told.
Mr Gair said Traynor was interviewed by police when he was sufficiently sober. He claimed he had been threatened in connection with a dispute over money owed for cannabis.
"So he decided to get revenge. Passing the property, he decided he would break in, and, in his words, he would 'trash' it," said Mr Gair.
Samatha Leigh, defence barrister, said probation reports on Traynor showed he believed he had been threatened.
