A man accused of breaking a car window so he could get in and turn off an alarm that had been going off for days has had the case against him dismissed.
Keith Engledow, 48, had been charged with criminal damage to a Jaguar S-Type vehicle in North Walsham on September 30 last year.
Mr Engledow, of Church Lane, Edingthorpe, near North Walsham, was due to stand trial at Norwich Magistrates Court last month after he entered a not guilty plea to the offence.
The case was heard on October 29 when it was dismissed after he was found to have no case to answer.
As previously reported, the court was told Mr Engledow, who was previously represented by solicitor Ralph Gilam, had permission from his neighbour, whose land the car had been parked on, to disable the alarm after breaking into the car.
