A burglar who smashed his way into a home was caught by detectives after leaving blood at the scene.
Brwa Karim entered the victim’s address in Southwell after smashing a window pane before taking items including jewellery and a mobile phone.
Detectives found blood inside the home which forensically linked the 22-year-old to the crime which was committed on the night of 2 February 2022.
Following detailed enquiries Karim was later arrested at an address in Twickenham, London. He went on to plead guilty to burglary.
Karim was jailed for seven months when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court for sentencing yesterday (Wednesday 3 August 2022).
Detective Constable Jayne Milne, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Karim travelled all the way from London to Southwell for no other apparent reason than to commit this burglary.
“He committed this offences without any regard whatsoever for the financial and emotional impact on the victim.
“I am pleased he is now off the streets and hope his imprisonment will reassure people the force takes all reports of burglary extremely seriously and is committed to both preventing burglaries before they happen and pursuing burglars who blight our communities and bringing them to justice.”
