DNA tests on blood spots left at the scene of a burglary showed it was Paul Chapman who had broken into his father-in-law's home while he was away on holiday.
Chapman had smashed his way into the Wisbech property, by breaking glass in a door with a plant pot.
He left blood on a light switch, rugs and curtains, all of which had to be thrown away, prosecutor Laura Mardell told Fenland magistrates. He caused damaged valued at £590.
Chapman, 29, who gave the court his postal address in Church Grove, Elm, admitted burglary with intent to do damage at the New Drove home of John Lynn on October 10 last year.
