A man has been handed a two-year jail sentence following the burglary of a property in Carlton.
Paul Aves, 46, of Staunton Drive, Nottingham, was sentenced to 876 days at Nottingham Crown Court on Wednesday, November 13, 2019.
Aves pleaded guilty to a burglary which took place on Porchester Road in Carlton, between 7 and 8 October 2019.
The property was unoccupied at the time because the owner had moved into residential care, although their belongings were still in the home.
Aves was arrested by police after his blood was found at the scene of the crime.
Detective Constable Ryan Atkin, who was involved in the investigation, said: “Burglary is an invasive crime, and in this case a family had to deal with the additional upset of their loved one’s home being broken into after they had become unwell.”
“I want to reassure the people of Nottinghamshire that we are committed to catching people who carry out burglaries and bringing them to justice.”Neighbourhood: Carlton and Porchester
