Teenager broke into church to steal.
A TEENAGER broke into a church after being ordered to leave a class there the previous day.
The 17-year-old pleaded guilty to burglary when he appeared at Kirklees Magistrates' Court.
The offence occurred at St Patrick's Church in New North Road on March 9. Shamaila Qureshi, prosecuting, said that the teenager had attended at the church the previous day. He was there for a training programme aimed at underprivileged people but had been asked to leave because he was not paying attention.
He returned the next day, entering through an insecure window, and stole a laptop and a projector from a classroom. His fingerprints were on the window and police discovered the items under his bed.
Magistrates gave the teen a 12-month referral order, aimed at rehabilitating him and addressing his behaviour.
