A 22-year-old man has been sentenced to two years and four months in prison for three Kettering burglaries.
Reece Fuinns, 22, previously of Kettering, pleaded guilty to the offences at Northampton Crown Court, which all took place in the same street on the same night.
In the early hours of July 1, 2020, Fuinns crept into three houses in Princes Street, Kettering. From one he stole cigarettes and tobacco, from another some bank cards, and from the last one – a hand drill.
This week at Northampton Crown Court he was handed a jail term of two years and four months.
Lead Investigator - PC Tony Abbott, said: “Reece Fuinns is a prolific burglar and the fact he is now in prison undoubtedly means that further burglaries will be prevented.
“Burglaries significantly affect the wellbeing of the people whose properties are broken into. Everyone deserves to feel safe in their homes and burglars completely violate this right.
“This is why Northamptonshire Police has a dedicated burglary team on both sides of the county – we know how deeply affected a victim of this crime-type can feel and we are absolutely determined to bring the offenders to justice.
“Finally, I would like to pay tribute to the detectives on the Burglary Team North, for ensuring Fuinns is now safely behind bars. I hope he takes the time to reflect on his crimes in order to make better life choices when he is released.”
Operation Crooked is Northamptonshire Police’s campaign to reduce burglary, which continues to be one of the Force’s seven policing priorities to fight crime and protect people.
