Norwich: Man Jailed For Burglary And Robbery

A man from Norwich who admitted breaking into a city home before robbing an off licence has been jailed.

Michael Cooper, of Reepham Road, stole a Behringer DJ mixing deck worth £1,000 after breaking into an address in West Pottergate by smashing a front window.

It happened on 19 October and later that evening Cooper went into the Get-a-Round off licence on Dereham Road where he pushed the cashier before stealing a quantity of alcohol.

Cooper, 32, was identified as a suspect after officers received information he was responsible for the break-in. CCTV was examined and as a result of enquiries into possible escape routes from West Pottergate, police made enquiries at Get-a-Round where they were told about the robbery. Staff members were able to identify Cooper as a suspect and he was later arrested and charged.  

Cooper appeared at Norwich Crown Court on Monday (14 April) where he was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment after pleading guilty to both offences.
