Man jailed for burgling neighbour

Thursday, 31 July 2014

A CHURT man has been jailed for nine months after admitting burgling his neighbour’s house when she was taken to hospital following a fall. Anthony Frizzell, 53, of Parkhurst Fields, stole more than £26,000 from Christine Payne, who is in her 60s, in June last year - Guildford Crown Court heard last week. As Ms Payne was being loaded into an ambulance after injuring herself in a fall on June 21, 2013, Frizzell overheard that a large amount of cash had been left in her house. Another neighbour of Ms Payne’s attempted to hide several bundles of bank notes in a tumble dryer, but when they returned some days later, the money had gone Police were alerted to the theft and found that more than £26,000 in cash and jewellery was missing from Ms Payne’s home. Frizzell was arrested and a search of his house uncovered various new electronic products and receipts of several thousand pounds each from various bank deposits. Police officers also found a receipt for a £5,000 Western Union transfer Frizzell had made to a person he had met on a dating website. When questioned, Frizzell admitted the burglary immediately.

M Brown - if you don’t stop complaining, you could soon see your street getting resident parking permits at a hefty annual charge. then you will be done at both ends.

Always wondered how resident only street parking permits work. Always thought under various Housing Acts, Highway Acts and Town and Country Planning Acts that public highways are exactly that, public highways. Since public highways in the county are administered by the county council at taxpayers cost, how can a district council decide who can and who can’t park on it.

I’m currently in Sydney and advise a balanced approach to parking in heavily urbanised areas. Residents, disabled and visitors should be catered for. Here people buy land or garages and then let to non-residents, thereby diminishing the available spaces to residents. My daughter-in-law has to park 1/4 mile away sometimes. Difficult when you’re with a toddler and shopping.
