A former member of the army who has admitted playing a role in the theft of night-vision binoculars from a Windsor barracks will be sentenced on November 14.
Thomas Biddlestone, of Ilkeston, Derby, was meant to be sentenced at Derby Crown Court yesterday, but it has been put back.
He admitted three offences of handling stolen goods and 10 counts of money laundering at the same court on October 6.
The 25-year-old was charged by MoD police in May for his role in the stealing of a £45,000 set of war-zone night sights from Combermere Barracks, in St Leonard’s Road, between February 1-28.
He will be sentenced at Derby Crown Court.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
