Andrew Rowley, 46, of Beckley Road, Nottingham, pleaded guilty to burgling a home in Franklyn Gardens, Aspley. He was jailed for 15 months.

The break-ins happened between 25 and 31 May 2018.

Denham stole cars from the driveways of the homes in Bilborough after breaking into the properties and taking car keys. Also stolen were jewellery, cash, a television and an iPad Air.

Denham and Rowley were sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Monday (25 February 2019).

Detective Inspector Kayne Rukas, of Nottinghamshire Police’s City Burglary Team, said: “I’m pleased that another two burglars are now off our streets.

“It’s another great result from our burglary team which is continuing to see good results and a reduction in burglary since the team was implemented last year.

“Burglary is a priority for Nottinghamshire Police. We fully understand the devastating impact that burglary has, both on the victims themselves and the wider community.

“We won’t tolerate people committing burglaries and we continue to work hard to bring offenders to justice.”
