Liam Dodson, aged 29 of no fixed address, appeared at Aylesbury Crown Court on Friday (29/9).
The offences, which all took place this year, were:
- Seven burglary dwelling and thefts which took place in Milton Keynes between 9 April and 26 June, in which various items were stolen.
- One offence of possession of a controlled drug - Class B cannabis on 6 July.
- Two counts of shoplifting in Milton Keynes on 19 April and 19 May, where groceries and a mobile phone were stolen.
- One attempted burglary of a property in Milton Keynes on 26 June.
Nine other burglary offences were taken into consideration.
Dodson was charged on 6 July 2017. At Friday’s hearing, he pleaded guilty to all of the offences and was sentenced to three years in prison.
Following the sentencing, PC Karen Waters from the Milton Keynes investigation hub, said: “This investigation was a team effort involving detectives from the investigation hub and the Burglary Management Unit based at Milton Keynes.
“Thanks to a thorough investigation, he was arrested, charged and brought before the courts.
“Burglary can be an incredibly intrusive and disturbing crime which leaves victims feeling violated and distressed, regardless of whether anything was stolen or not. I hope this sentence highlights how seriously we have investigated these offences to ensure that Dodson was brought to justice for his actions.”
