A man has given a prison sentence following a series of burglaries in Loughborough last month.
Daniel Richardson, 33, of no fixed address, was sentenced at Leicester Crown Court yesterday (25 August) for the following offences:
Burglary at a property in Bridge Street on 9 July
Burglary at a property in The Rushes on 8 July
Burglary at a property in Wards End on 7 July
Burglary at a business premises in Church Gate on 3 July
Three further offences of business burglaries on 6, 10 and 11 July were ordered to lie on file.
He was sentenced to a total of 44 months in prison.
Detective Constable James Highton, the investigating officer, said: “Over this short period, Richardson forced entry into these addresses and stole items including alcohol, tobacco, tools, handbags and a mountain bike.
“He gave no regard to the impact a burglary can have on those victims and people within the surrounding community.
“He is now facing a period of time in prison to face up to his crimes and I hope the fact that he has been sentenced so soon after committing his latest crime will provide reassurance to people in and around Charnwood of the work the force is doing to tackle such offenders.”
