Cambridge Burglar Jailed After Police Op
Daniel Brock, 24, of Laxton Way, Cambridge, was arrested by officers as part of Operation Northwood, a year long investigation into burglary and theft in the city.
Brock pleaded guilty to conspiracy to convert stolen property and conspiracy to burgle.
He was jailed at Cambridge Crown Court on Friday (April 15th).
Detective Inspector Andy Gipp said: "Brock is a prolific burglar and we're pleased he has now been locked up."
"The operation built up a strong case against him and he was left with little option but to admit his crimes."
The crackdown on burglars and thieves in the city helped raise detection rates on Southern Division over the past 12 months.
Statistics show 30 per cent of burglaries were solved in the 12 months to March 31, an improvement of 18.2 per cent compared with the previous year.
The figures revealed a nine-year low in recorded crime in Southern Division - down from 30,074 in 2002/03 to 22,150 last year.
DI Gipp added: "Operation Northwood was a lengthy investigation which targeted burglary and theft across the city. We used a range of tactics to disrupt those involved in criminality and it made a real difference to residents' lives."
"The operation was just one of a number of initiatives we use to crackdown on people committing these types of offences."
"We are committed to reducing crime and making Cambridge a safer place to live."
Abellio has announced it will sell 40% of the Greater Anglia rail franchise to Japanese giant Mitsui.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
