Brother admits burglary on same night as tragic death
IPSWICH: A man is today awaiting his punishment after admitting carrying out a burglary at a factory on the same night as his brother died.
Mark Vince appeared at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court where he pleaded guilty to burglary with intent to steal.
He was committed to Ipswich Crown Court for sentencing in August.
The 24-year-old, formerly of Hawke Road but who now lives at his mother’s address in Schreiber Road, Ipswich, burgled a disused factory, Crane Fluid Systems in Nacton Road, Ipswich, on April 14.
This incident happened on the same night as his brother, 30-year-old Johnathan Ehlert, was electrocuted during a break-in at a substation.

Magistrates chose not to activate a 16-week suspended sentence for an earlier offence, which would have meant Vince serving time in prison, because of three recent family bereavements.
Vince was released on bail until his appearance at crown court on the condition that he continues to live at his mother’s address and report to Ipswich police station twice a week.
