A BURGLAR was caught after trying to sell stolen items at a Hampshire pawn shop, a court heard.

Benjamin Woodman admitted burgling a home in Gore Road, New Milton, stealing two laptops and an iPhone before trying to sell the goods at the New Milton shop.

Woodman, 30, of Nelson Close, New Milton, appeared at Southampton Crown Court for sentencing but it was adjourned for a pre-sentencing report.

The court heard he had committed the offence on March 13 to sell the property to fund his drug habit.

He was remanded in custody until May 6.
