Mansfield Woodhouse man jailed after break in

A brazen burglar who walked into a school during the day and stole property has been jailed.

Stephen Beilby (33) entered Ashfield School on 7th October and took a laptop, mobile phone and small sum of money.

Beilby, of Gladstone Street, Mansfield Woodhouse, admitted the burglary and asked for eight other offences to be considered.

Nottingham Crown Court judge, Recorder Tregilgas Davey said: “This was a brazen offence.”

Beilby was jailed for 10 months.

The judge said it was mercifully short as Beilby appeared motivated to change.
