A 13-year-old has pleaded guilty to breaking into the house of a recently deceased father and stealing £15,000 worth of electrical items.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, burgled the property in Clemence Road, Dagenham, just days after 33-year-old dennis Glossop died of kidney failure last month.
He was arrested and charged with burglary and theft on April 10 and appeared at Barkingside Magistrates Court on Wednesday (1) where he entered a guilty plea.
The boy has been remanded in custody and will attend the same court on May 25 for sentencing.
Mr Glossop’s family were devastated when they discovered thousands of pounds worth of belongings that he had left for his six children had been stolen.
