Jail for burglar who stole £13,500 worth of goods from a leisure centre

A ‘prolific offender’ has been jailed after leaving his blood at the scene of a burglary.

Shane Green, aged 31, entered the Lammas Leisure Centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield, causing more than £2,500 of damage and making off with more than £13,500 of goods.

As well as stealing a TV, digital radios and computer tablets during the raid in the early hours of March 18 this year, Green and two unidentified accomplices also made off with a large charity box.

Police attended the scene the following day and found blood belonging to Green on a door frame – deposited as he smashed a glass panel and cut his hand.

He was arrested later the same day still wearing the same clothes he wore during the burglary.

Green, of Woods Hill, Sutton-in-Ashfield, has multiple previous convictions for burglary offences, gave ‘no comment’ answers in his police interview but – when faced with the overwhelming evidence of his guilt – later admitted to a charge of burglary.

Appearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday, he was jailed for one year and eight months.
