A preliminary hearing for three men facing charges of burgling the Leslie Davis jewellers has been adjourned until tomorrow.

Bogdan Acsinte, aged 27, of Colegrave Road, Stratford, London; Robert Caia, aged 27, of Prosser Street, Wolverhampton; and Gheorghe Cretu, aged 26, of no fixed abode, were charged with conspiracy to commit a burglary other than a dwelling with intent to steal.

The charge relates to a conspiracy to burgle a number of jewellers between August 1 and October 16, in which offenders entered as a trespasser with intent to steal at Swag Jewellers, Beaverbrooks, Ernest Jones and Gordon Scotts in Watford, Hertfordshire, on August 29 2014 and Leslie Davies Jewellers in Milton Keynes on Thursday (October 16).

But despite being scheduled to appear at Milton Keynes Magistrates' Court this afternoon, the case was adjourned until tomorrow morning as a Romanian interpreter could not be found to translate for them during proceedings.

They were remanded in custody overnight to appear again tomorrow morning.


A court case involving an alleged double assault at a college has been adjourned while an interpreter is found.

Osama Osman, aged 21, of Henrietta Street, Swansea, is accused of assaulting two people at Gower College Swansea's Tycoch campus on August 28. No pleas were entered during a brief hearing before city magistrates.

Osman's solicitor, Stewart John, said that while his client had a decent level of English he would need an Arabic translator before the proceedings could continue.

A Burton man facing a charge of assault has had his case adjourned.

Anton Tolok, 27, of Curzon Way, was due to answer a charge of assaulting Dale Fessey at Burton Magistrates' Court yesterday. The alleged offence was said to have taken place on August 9.

However, magistrates at the Horninglow Street courthouse were not happy for the case to proceed without an interpreter present. Tolok did have a friend to assist him with his English, but the case was adjourned.

Tolok, whose first language is Russian but who also speaks Polish, will return to court on September 4 to answer the charge.
