AN armed robber who is serving 13 years after going on a nationwide crime spree while on the run has pleaded guilty to ransacking two homes.

Lyndon Stein, 50, who is currently in Walton Prison, admitted two burglaries at Elston Avenue in Newton-le-Willows and Highfield Street in Peasley Cross between May and June last year.

In Newton he stole £1,500 in cash, two bicycles, a laptop computer, an iPad, a playstation and a halogen oven worth £1,310.

His raid in Peasley Cross netted him two laptops, an Armani watch, car keys and a set of golf clubs valued at £2,280.

Stein had escaped from an open prison in Buckinghamshire in April last year and went on a robbery spree that eventually saw him plead guilty to 13 robberies and attempted robberies and 12 offences of possessing an imitation firearm or offensive weapon.

His crime wave included banks and building societies, including Santander in Fingerpost, and shops and off licences.

Stein is due to be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court next month.
