Main article content
A Wellingborough man has been jailed for stealing jewellery worth £2,000 in a burglary.
Daniel Farrant, 26, of Kestrel Lane, appeared at Northampton Crown Court on Friday, June 28, after admitting breaking into a home in Varley Close, Wellingborough, on January 22.
Farrant, who is already serving an 18-week sentence for three assaults - including two on police officers, was sentenced to 20 months in prison for the burglary, to begin after his current sentence ends next month.
Farrant was one of the Force's top ten most wanted burglars, publicised as part of Operation Crooked.
Operation Crooked is Northamptonshire Police’s campaign to reduce burglary - a top priority for the Force.
As part of the operation, every burglary victim in Northamptonshire is guaranteed a visit from the police, and the team, which sits within CID, are working to review and drive up the quality of investigations, manage and progress forensic hits, hunt down wanted people, organise police patrols in areas of concern and gather intelligence to prevent burglaries before they happen.
