Burglary and weapon possession charges for Liverpool teenager
Eighteen-year-old appears in court after 6 hour stand-off at Everton home following burglary
A teenager from Liverpool appeared in court last Thursday charged in connection with a 6 hour stand-off with police at a house in Everton after he committed a burglary crime.
The young eighteen-year-old male, named as Jamie Carr of Anfield Road, Anfield, appeared before Liverpool Magistrates Court and was charged with a number of offences, including non-dwelling burglary, aggravated burglary, the possession of an offensive weapon and for also being in breach of a criminal ASBO.
These charges follow an incident in which a suspected burglar, who was armed with a knife, was spotted hanging out of the upstairs window of someone’s house on Caird Street. The suspect was seen at about 4:00pm on Wednesday, which alerted a neighbour who then called 999.
It is understood that the homeowners were away on holiday.
As the suspect was hanging out of the upstairs window by his legs, six police officers were stood outside the property and one of the residents told the local newspaper the ECHO, that the suspect had said to the police he would jump from the window if they came inside the house.
Police had to seal off Caird Street and residents of the street were told to stay indoors and a parkland area opposite the street was also cordoned off.
Not long after 9.30pm, a team of police officers in riot gear and two police dog handlers turned up at the property and managed to force their way in at around 10:00pm.
