A man has pleaded guilty to 16 offences including burglary and assault over a two-week period in Worthing.
Frazier Furlong, 27, of no fixed address, was convicted of three counts of assaulting an emergency worker; two counts of burglary; two counts of obstructing a constable from performing their duty; theft; fraud; attempted burglary; possession of cocaine and five counts of criminal damage for incidents that span from 28 October to 8 November.
On 28 October, Furlong attempted to break into a property in Poulters Lane, Worthing. After he was unsuccessful, he went to another property on Offington Drive where he damaged a TV and a car which was parked in the drive.
He was then arrested and taken to Worthing Custody Centre, where he assaulted an officer.
On 2 November, he broke into a pub on Warwick Street, Worthing and stole alcohol, before breaking into another pub in Brighton Road.
Later that day he smashed a car window and proceeded to resist arrest.
On 8 November, Furlong stole an Xbox from Currys in Lyons Farm, Worthing and went on to sell it at a pawn shop before smashing the windows of two shops in Brighton Road and Warwick Street.
He was then arrested and searched where he assaulted an officer and resisted arrest. He was also found in possession of cocaine.
Detective Inspector Gary Jacobs said: “Furlong committed a number of offences in quick succession and the team worked tirelessly to ensure he is held accountable for his actions in a short time period.
“I hope that when he is sentenced, he will no longer have the opportunity to offend for a considerable amount of time and will have the time to rehabilitate.”
Furlong pleaded guilty to all 16 offences when he appeared at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 10 November and was remanded in custody.
He is due to appear at a court to be fixed on Friday, 1 December for sentencing.
