Hard to Credit.

Thanks to Jerym Eedy for this press report.
If this is true, and if there are no facts that we have not heard, the decision to caution is a dreadful one. This kind of offence (if properly charged by the CPS) would normally be sent to the Crown Court.

Later... This report speaks of Conspiracy to Commit Burglary - an indictable-only offence that magistrates cannot deal with and has to be sent up to the Crown Court. But this one wasn't. Usual caveats about press accuracy apply.
