An arrest warrant has been issued for a Wigan thief after he failed to turn up to court for sentencing.

Andrew Baratinsky, 40, of Kimberley Place, Ashton-in-Makerfield, had previously stood before justices to plead guilty to the theft of a £60 package owned by a householder in Lambert Meadows, Tyldesley, on February 10.

He had also admitted to breaching the terms of a community order but been cleared of stealing alcohol from Bryn Street post office, Ashton-in-Makerfield in January last year following a trial.

The case was adjourned until May during which time Baratinsky was released on conditional bail.

But when the day came to learn his fate, the offender didn't show and so the bench issued a warrant.
