A man has been locked up for carrying out burglaries on properties in Gedling and Mapperley while the occupants slept.
Jake Shaw, 19, of Lotus Close, St Ann’s, was sentenced to three years and six months’ imprisonment at Nottingham Crown Court on Thursday (March 21).
In the early hours of Sunday, November 25, Shaw entered a house in Third Avenue, Gedling, while the occupant was sleeping and took two hard drives, a purse and a debit card.
At around 1am on January 5, 2019, Shaw entered a house in Marshall Road, Mapperley, while the occupants were sleeping and took two sets of car keys, house keys, a purse, bank cards, two handbags, a wallet, cash and two cars, which were found abandoned in the early hours of the following morning.
DS Craig Luckett said: “Credit has to go to the Burglary team who worked tirelessly on this case to ensure the victims got justice. I’m pleased to see the courts recognised the impact this type of crime has on communities and reflected that in their sentence.”
