A man asked for seven further charges to be taken into account after admitting burglary in Heathfield Road, Grantham.
Luke Mayer, 29, of Heathfield Road, Grantham, admitted taking two sat navs, a wallet, golf clubs and a cooker, as well as trespassing and handling a stolen motorbike.
Former heroin addict Mayer went into an unoccupied house in Heathfield Road but discovered the house had already been broken into and everything of value was gone.
Jim Clare said Mayer admitted that if there had been anything to steal he would have taken it.
Rory Macmillan, defending, said Mayer wanted the other matters to be taken into account so he could start with a clean slate.
Mayer was released on unconditional bail .
