A 47-year old man has been sentenced to six years and eight months for burglary offences as part of Operation Crooked.
Daniel Crawley, of no fixed abode, was convicted for a burglary at St Gregory’s Church on July 17, a burglary at B&Q on August 13, where police caught him in the act trying to steal a guide dog charity collection box, a burglary at the Outpost Café on August 18, a burglary at a property in High Street, Lamport, where war medals and jewellery were stolen, and a burglary at Blisworth Football Club on September 17.
Lead Investigator, PC Chris Perkins from the Force Burglary Team, said: “Daniel Crawley was a prolific burglar who we were determined to catch and bring charges against.
“I am pleased to see him locked up for a significant period of time and I know that homes and businesses in Northamptonshire will be safer as a result.”
Operation Crooked is Northamptonshire Police’s campaign to reduce burglary - a top priority for the Force. As part of the operation, the Burglary Team, which sits within CID, ensure that every burglary victim in Northamptonshire is guaranteed a visit from the police.
They are also 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.
