Five months for attempted Burglary

Christian Chipolina aged 25, of 10 Rosia Steps was sentenced to five months in prison for attempted burglary at the Magistrates Court yesterday.

An RGP (Royal Gibraltar Police) spokesman said:

“In the early hours of Tuesday January 4th 2005 an attempted burglary was committed at a local bar. The culprits forced open the security railings and smashed open a window to the bar. On doing this the intruder alarm was activated and the culprits ran away and hid in a nearby doorway.

Police officers were dispatched to the area where three men were arrested, one of whom was Chipolina. The three men were jointly charged with a count of attempted burglary and appeared before the Magistrates Court the following day. Yesterday Chipolina was convicted of the said charge and sentenced to five months in prison.”
