A 37 year old man from Haverhill has been jailed for 16 weeks for burglary.
Wayne Read of Dalham Place appeared before Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday, Wednesday 28th April, where he pleaded guilty to one count of burglary and for being in breach of a community order.
It follows an incident on Monday 26th April when a property in Rosefinch Close was broken into and jewellery disturbed, but not taken.
CCTV captured a male walking towards the property and Read was identified as a former occupant.
Officers from the Haverhill Safer Neighbourhood team arrested Read the following day, Tuesday 27th April, in connection with the incident and he was taken to Bury St Edmunds Police Investigation Centre for questioning, where he was subsequently charged.
On 11th January this year, Read appeared at Ipswich Magistrates’ after a spate of theft from vehicle-related incidents in Haverhill where he was sentenced to a 12-month community order.
As he was in breach of this order, Read was sentenced to 16 weeks’ imprisonment and ordered to pay £128 in compensation.
