Youths cleared over Crystal Palace Park cafe attempted break-in
THREE youths from Penge who were accused of attempting to break into the Crystal Palace Park café have had the charges against them dropped.
This comes after a 17-year-old teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to attempted burglary at Bromley Magistrates’ Court.
As a result of the Penge teenager’s plea, the Crown Prosecution Service decided to discontinue the case against 18-year-olds Dale Moss, of Upchurch Close, Jamie Elliott, of Wiverton Road, and 20-year-old Joseph Read, of Rosewell Close.
The 17-year-old was given a youth rehabilitation order, requiring him to undertake a gardening project for six days and participate in a re-focus workshop for six days, along with a 12 month supervision order.
He was also ordered to pay £50 compensation and £30 court costs at the court on March 5.
