A burglar who stole a boat, tractor and caravan from properties across Fenland has been jailed for three and a half years.

Andrew Yallop, 21, of King Street, Wisbech, admitted the offences after pleading guilty to four break-ins across Norfolk at Norwich Crown Court on Friday.

In the space of a few months he stole three vans, two outboard boat engines, a John Deere tractor, caravan, dinghy and syphoned diesel from properties in March, Elm and Wisbech.

He helped himself to jewellery, televisions and cash from four homes in Norfolk.

In total he admitted four burglaries and asked for a further 80 offences to be taken into consideration – including 12 in Fenland.

Detective Constable Chris Smith said: “Yallop is a prolific offender who targeted homes and businesses over a huge area.

“His actions have caused disruption to a number of businesses and brought misery to victims across Fenland, Norfolk and other neighbouring counties.

“We’re pleased he has now been brought to justice.”
