Burglars Locked up for Local Burglary

Alert message sent 16/11/2019 15:40:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Two men have begun prison sentences after admitting their involvement in a burglary earlier this year.

Jamie Hallam, 35, and Scott Colman, 37, appeared at Leicester Crown Court on Monday (11 November) where they each pleaded guilty to one count of theft of a motor vehicle and one count of burglary dwelling.

They were sentenced to:
Colman, of no fixed address, was sentenced to five years imprisonment
Hallam of White Barn Drive, Cosby, was sentenced to three years imprisonment

Overnight on 20 February the pair gained entry to an address off Pollards Road in Anstey.
The occupants were asleep inside the property when the thieves got in via a downstairs window.

They took a set of keys from the house and left the scene in a Volvo which had been left locked and secure on the driveway.

Following information received both men were detained hours later in Lubbesthorpe.

The Volvo was recovered a month later in Noble Street.

PC James Dixon and DC Louise Thomas were involved in the investigation. PC Dixon said: “Hallam and Colman targeted an address without a thought to the impact their actions would have on the victims.  The police and courts take crimes such as these extremely seriously and that has been reflected in the sentences handed down to these two offenders earlier this week.  This outcome should act as a warning to others that if you commit similar crimes you will be prosecuted and you will face going to prison.”

Hallam and Colman were also charged with five separate counts of attempted burglary. These offences were ordered to lie on file.
