Lambourn man Joseph Wonnacott locked up to await burglary and witness intimidation hearing
A MAN has been locked up on charges of burglary and witness intimidation.
Joseph Wonnacott appeared in the dock at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Monday, September 18.
The 26-year-old, who lives in Lambourn High Street, faces two charges of burgling Parsonage House in St Michael’s Close, Lambourn.
On the first occasion – Wednesday, September 13 – Mr Wonnacott is said to have burgled the property and stolen two packets of cigarettes.
On the second occasion, Saturday, September 16, he is said to have burgled the same property and stolen cash, a wallet and cigarettes worth £30.
In addition, the former pupil of John O’Gaunt School in Hungerford, is alleged to have tried to pervert the course of justice by threatening to punch a witness to the September 13 burglary, namely Julian Bird.
Mr Wonnacoot, who was legally represented at the hearing, was told the case was being sent to Reading Crown Court to be dealt with by a judge and, in the event of a trial, by a jury, on a date to be fixed.
District judge Samuel Goozee meanwhile denied him bail and remanded him in custody.
