Barnsley ram raids

A man who committed two ram raid style burglaries at shops just over a mile apart is facing time behind bars for his crimes.

30-year-old Shane William Greenwood, of no fixed address, appeared at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday 10 July, where he pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary of business properties, committed in February of this year.

DC Paul Woodruff, the investigating officer, said: “Thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused to both shops, when a vehicle was used to ram the shop fronts.”

“Both offences were committed within minutes of each other, the first being on Church Street, Darton and the second on Spark Lane, Mapplewell, where Greenwood stole some alcohol after deliberately reversing the car into the front of the shop to gain entry.

“Through CCTV work, Greenwood was identified as a suspect and was quickly arrested. Once he was in custody, his clothing was seized, which further linked him to the breaks and enabled us to charge him with the offences.”

Greenwood has been remanded into custody and will be back at Sheffield Crown Court on Monday 7 August for sentencing.
