Towcester Man Jailed For String Of Crimes

A Towcester man's been jailed for 9 years after admitting to a string of offences in Northants, Bucks and Beds.

Brian Burke, aged 41, of Meadow Bank, Towcester, appeared at Northampton Crown Court (on Weds, May 6), pleading guilty to 11 house burglaries, three motor vehicle thefts and several fraud and handling offences across Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

The offences all happened last year between February and early June.

Among evidence presented in court was a statement from one of Burke's victims, which discussed the impact of a burglary on their home, including the loss of irreplaceable sentimental items and photographs.

Detective Constable Helen Meeks said:

"I'm satisfied that Burke has received a sentence that reflects the nature of the crimes he committed and I hope it helps provide some closure to the victims who have suffered as a result of his intrusion into their homes."
