Scunthorpe man has 'appalling' criminal record with 280 convictions
A serial offender with a string of 280 convictions had an “appalling” criminal record that stretched to 29 pages, a court heard.
Colin Monaghan, 41, of Frodingham Road, Scunthorpe, admitted burglary between June 24 and 27 and stealing nine jumpers, valued at £54, from the town’s Westgate Department Store on August 4.
Martin Howarth, prosecuting, told North Lincolnshire Magistrates’ Court that Monaghan smashed a window at the store and stole 25 lighters, silver tankards and trophies, valued at £1,200, after forcing a cabinet.
David Rix, mitigating, said: “His record is appalling. He has got to come to terms with his drug addiction and his offending.”
