Grantham court: Woman broke into home of her parents

Have your say

A woman broke into her parents’ home through a first floor window on Saturday night (May 18) and stole £40 - breaching a restraining order in the process.

Nicola Coggin, who gave her address as care of Harrowby Close in Grantham, committed burglary at her parents’ home in Melbourne Road, Grantham, breaking in through the first floor bathroom window.

Daniel Pietryka, prosecuting, said: “They were in bed at the time the burglary took place.”

The court heard Coggin, 36, was already subject to a restraining order banning her from contacting her parents.

Mr Pietryka told the court Coggin was seen fleeing the scene of the crime by a witness.

Coggin, who was on bail for other matters at the time of the offence, refused to comment in her police interview but admitted the offence in court.

The case was adjourned until June 4.

Chair of magistrates said she was remanding Coggin, 36, in custody until that date “for fear of committing further offences”.

As Coggin was led away, she stuck two fingers up to a police officer who was sat at the back of the court.
