Teenager accused of stealing cash from own gran in Harold Hill
A teenager accused of stealing thousands of pounds from his own grandparents appeared in court last week.
Joe Barlow, 18, formerly of Reeves Close, Basildon, appeared at Barkingside Magistrates’ Court, in Cranbrook Road, on Thursday to face charges of burglary on two occasions.
The court heard that Barlow is alleged to have stolen �1,600 in cash from the home of Linda Huggett, his paternal gran, on March 9 and again three days later when he entered the home in Kenilworth Avenue, Harold Hill, where he stole cash up to the value of �6,900.
Barlow did not enter a plea.
The case will be heard at Basildon Crown Court on May 18 due to the large amount of money involved.
