Man admits North Wales car thefts conspiracy



A Merseyside man has pleaded guilty to his role in a summer spate of house burglaries and vehicle thefts across North Wales.

Neil Farthing from Huyton admitted conspiring with others to steal cars from driveways after taking the ignition keys from inside houses.

Farthing (29) had previously denied two burglaries on the night of Saturday 20th August. A BMW was taken off the drive of a house on Heol Conwy in Abergele and an Audi car was stolen from a house on Rhuddlan Road in Rhyl.

Mold Crown Court previously heard that police were still investigating more burglaries when Farthing was charged. He went onto admit being part of a conspiracy between 28th July and 21st August.

Farthing’s defence said he knew he was facing a lengthy jail sentence – and his previous criminal record would do him ‘no favours’. In 2005, he was sent to a young offenders’ institute for three after a spate of car thefts and burglaries across Merseyside.

Judge Geraint Walters, told Farthing that custody was inevitable and remanded him until sentencing takes place at a later date.
