Two men who were involved in a 'campaign' of thefts from a vulnerable man will be sentenced next month.
Jonathan Quinn and Gary Bryant had denied stealing cash from the victim over a period of nearly three months but changed their pleas to guilty during their trial at Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday (September 12).
Bryant, 52, of Crown Street West, Lowestoft admitted six offences of theft and Quinn, 38, of Blyford Road, Lowestoft, admitted five offences of theft between January 26 and April 6 this year.
Adjourning sentence until the week commencing October 14 Judge John Devaux warned the men that although he had asked the probation service to prepare reports on them they could still be jailed.
He described the offences as a "campaign of thefts" from a vulnerable man.
