During his crime spree, Hyde also targeted business premises in Hebden Bridge where he stole cake.
Local officers were quickly deployed to the Hebden Bridge incidents and Hyde was arrested nearby.

Jailing him over a video link to HMP Leeds the Recorder of Bradford Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC said he had to identify an overall sentence which was appropriate without offending the victims who were already traumatised by Hyde’s crimes.
