10:59am Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
A MAN who stole almost £17,000 worth of jewellery from a small independent trader in Worcestershire has been remanded in custody to await sentence.
Ion Rostas, aged 34, targeted Greville Rossiter in Worcester Road, Hagley, in a distraction burglary on March 12 last year, Worcester Crown Court heard.
He took gold rings and bracelets worth a total of £16,963 in the raid.
Rostas, of Cherrywood Road, Bordesley Green, Birmingham, was convicted on July 15 and was due to be sentenced yesterday, but due to delays with his pre-sentence report he will now be dealt with on Tuesday (August 20).
