Jewellery raid preliminary hearing adjourned until tomorrow as Romanian interpreter could not be found
A preliminary hearing for three men facing charges of burgling the Leslie Davis jewellers has been adjourned until tomorrow.
Bogdan Acsinte, aged 27, of Colegrave Road, Stratford, London; Robert Caia, aged 27, of Prosser Street, Wolverhampton; and Gheorghe Cretu, aged 26, of no fixed abode, were charged with conspiracy to commit a burglary other than a dwelling with intent to steal.
The charge relates to a conspiracy to burgle a number of jewellers between August 1 and October 16, in which offenders entered as a trespasser with intent to steal at Swag Jewellers, Beaverbrooks, Ernest Jones and Gordon Scotts in Watford, Hertfordshire, on August 29 2014 and Leslie Davies Jewellers in Milton Keynes on Thursday (October 16).
But despite being scheduled to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court this afternoon, the case was adjourned until tomorrow morning as a Romanian interpreter could not be found to translate for them during proceedings.
They were remanded in custody overnight to appear again tomorrow morning.
