A MAN has appeared before magistrates facing charges of attempted burglary and handling stolen goods.
Daniel Paul, 23, is alleged to have attempted to enter a property on St Peter’s Crescent in Kirkheaton with intent to steal.
He faces another charge of dishonestly receiving stolen goods, a Blackberry mobile worth £200.
Finally Paul, of New Laithe Close in Lowerhouses, is alleged to have breached a non-molestation order.
He will be tried on the attempted burglary and handing stolen goods matters at the crown court.
The alleged breach of the none-molestation order will stay in the magistrates’ court for trial.
Magistrates were told that the order was taken out on March 16 by Paul’s ex-partner Charlotte Hutchinson.
Vanessa Schofield, prosecuting, said that one of the conditions of the order was that Paul stayed away from her.
But on January 3, police attended Miss Hutchinson’s home and found him hiding in the drawer of a child’s divan bed.
At the time Paul was subject to court bail, charged with breaching the order on a previous occasion and assaulting his ex.
Magistrates remanded Paul in custody until February 9 when he will appear by prison video link.
