Stephen James Was More Than Twice Over The Limit
Burglar From Peterborough Jailed For Nearly Four Years
A man from Peterborough, who watched someone leave their home and then burgled it, has been jailed for nearly four years.
Robert Hooker broke into a house in Wainwright in Werrington on April 11th, after watching the victim leave for work.
He then stole more than £2,500 worth of goods including game consoles, a laptop and camera.
The 46 year old, from the same road, was caught on CCTV walking to the property empty handed but walking away with numerous bags.
He pleaded guilty to one count of burglary and another offence of burglary was taken into consideration.
He was sentenced to 44 months in prison.
PC Danny Cummings said: "Hooker watched and waited for his victim to leave before carrying out the burglary. He was clearly not aware he was being filmed on CCTV.
"We are committed to arresting those carrying out burglaries in the county and I hope this sentence sends a clear message that we take burglary very seriously."
