A BURGLAR who stole more than £2,000 worth of jewellery has been jailed for six years.

Andrew Corker, 35, of Cottier Drive, Littleport, was sentenced on October 24 at Peterborough Crown Court after being found guilty of burglary.

Corker broke into a house in Swaffham Prior on January 13, damaging patio doors and snatching a tin of jewellery and a black folder.

A neighbour challenged Corker as he left the house clutching the black folder and he said he was there to lay concrete before driving off in a van.

Officers later traced Corker through the van and he was arrested.

DC Dan Bramley said: “I hope this sentence demonstrates the serious consequences of burglary.

“This type of offence is extremely stressful and disruptive for victims and I hope in this case the fact that justice has been done will afford them some comfort.”
