A burglar disturbed during a break-in hid in a wardrobe… for 13 hours. Aaron Bradford, 18, of Plymouth, hid when his victim returned home in Yelverton, Devon, while he ransacked it at 2.40pm on April 7. The owner called police, who arrived and took away CCTV footage while the burglar was hiding in the wardrobe. He emerged when his victim had gone to bed at 4am, taking a camera, laptop and cash. Bradford admitted burglary at the same house on three other occasions and a string of other offences. At Plymouth Crown Court he was sentenced to five years in a young offender institution.
