Joby Pool from Tingley, near Leeds, West Yorkshire appeared before magistrates in Telford on Wednesday to face new charges after concerns were raised in a previous hearing about the existing offences to which the 32-year-old had already pleaded guilty.

The sentencing of Pool was adjourned in March when Shrewsbury Crown Court was told the Crown Prosecution Service was awaiting further information from West Yorkshire Police about the theft of the lorry.

Pool had previously pleaded guilty to the theft of the lorry trailer in Stafford Park in Telford from its owner SW Logistics, theft of its contents belonging to Magna Specialist Confectioners worth more than £31,000, and criminal damage to a chain lock.
