A 19-year-old man is to be sentenced after stealing four pairs of ladies underwear from a house in Soham.

Ricky Dalrymple, 19, of Foxwood South, Soham, appeared at Cambridge Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday, charged with two counts of burglary.

The charges relate to two incidents, both at the same address in Qua Fen Common, Soham.

The first incident took place between 10am and 3.30pm on February 23, and the second at 9am the following morning (February 24).

Dalrymple smashed a rear ground floor window to gain entry to the house before carrying out a search, leaving a trail of blood as he did so.

Nothing was stolen other than four pairs of ladies underwear and a key to the house.

He then returned the following morning and was arrested nearby shortly after.
