THE alleged accomplice of a raider stabbed to death by an OAP was held in custody over another ­burglary yesterday.

Billy Jeeves, 28, faced court to deny stealing £810 of power tools from Homebase last year. But he admitted skipping bail, saying a “family feud” forced him to flee.

Billy Jeeves, 28, was remanded in custody over a second burglary

Jeeves had been on the run from police after failing to appear in court on December 18. He was finally arrested on Friday.

It’s claimed Jeeves was involved in the burglary of a house in Hither Green, South London, on April 4.

Billy Jeeves caused a scene at Bromley Magistrates Court by repeatedly shouting at his OWN solicitor during a brief hearing.

Prosecutor Denise Johnson said Jeeves was arrested last year on suspicion of burglary after he was seen running from a branch of Homebase in Orpington, Kent, on October 22.

She said: “The manager was alerted when the alarm was activated in the warehouse and the fire exit was open.

“Two men were seen running across the yard. A shop worker checked the CCTV, which showed them carrying boxes of tools.

“They were seen climbing over the fence at the rear. Mr Jeeves was carrying £810 worth of power tools while the other man, who has not been identified, had £200 worth of items.”

Ryan Brennan, defending, said Jeeves had failed to answer his bail because of a “long-running family feud”.
