AN UNDERWEAR thief who stole women’s clothing from a washing line at night has had his sentencing adjourned for a third time.
Luke Wicker, formerly of Whitby Close, Biggin Hill, appeared today at Bromley Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to four counts of theft from June 1 to 11.
The 20-year-old chef stole the clothes from the back garden at a house in Melody Road, Biggin Hill, by jumping over the fence during the early hours of the morning when he was on his way back from work.
When police arrested him, Wicker had 65 items of clothing stuffed down the side of his bed.
Wicker’s current address was withheld following an application from his solicitor after the court heard he feared reprisals.
He is now due to be sentenced on August 20 to allow for further probation assessments.
