A 24-year-old man has pleaded guilty to eleven burglary and theft offences that took place in Rushden.
Thomas William Jones, 24, of Newton Court, Rushden, was charged with a number of crimes in March and February this year including five shoplifting offences, three burglaries, one attempted burglary, one theft from a motor vehicle, and one attempted theft from a shop.
Jones would repeatedly enter stores across Rushden and steal a range of items. He also burgled a house in Park Lane on April 15, whereby he stole a laptop whilst the homeowner was inside the property.
At Northampton Crown Court on Wednesday, April 21, Jones pleaded guilty to all eleven offences. He will be sentenced on May 21, 2021.
PC Kieran Fowler from Northamptonshire Police’s Burglary Team North, said: “Thomas Jones is a prolific shoplifter and burglar so I am pleased that the evidence we presented gave him no other choice but to plead guilty at court.
“We are determined to continue working hard to take people like Jones off the streets of Northamptonshire as they just cause misery to the majority of our residents here.”
