Three sentenced for Boxing Day burglary

Three people have admitted burgling a house in Derby on Boxing Day.

The burglary occurred at a property in St Chads Road on 26 December – a laptop, bank card, cigarettes and food were stolen. The bank card was later used in a number of shops in Derby.

The trio were caught when one of them left fingerprints on a bottle of hand santiser in the property and officers were able to identify her. The other two were identified after being seen CCTV footage to enter the property.

Robert Wood, 47, of HMP Nottingham, has been charged with burglary and four counts of fraud.

Jason Kydd, 47, of no fixed abode, has been charged with burglary.

Kelly Marsh, 43, no fixed abode , has been charged with burglary and theft from a shop.

All admitted the charges when they appeared at Derby Crown Court on 5 April.

Marsh was given a 24 month prison sentence, suspended for 22 months, a six-month curfew, a drug rehabilitation requirement and was ordered to complete 25 rehabilitation activity requirement days.

Wood and Kydd will be sentenced on 13 May.

PC James Dean from our South Neighbourhood Acquisitive Crime Team said: “The victim in this matter was a vulnerable person and these three people took advantage of that to invade his safe space and steal his belongings. Their actions left the victim suffering financial and personal loss and feeling afraid that they will return again.

“This kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable – no-one should be made to feel unsafe in their own home.

“We know the impact being burgled can have on people and we will always work hard to ensure offenders are brought to justice.”
