A burglar who left blood at the home of his Wisbech victim has been jailed to 18 months.
Mark Coleman, 37, of King Street, Wisbech, broke into the house in Beechwood Road, Wisbech, on March 18.
Having tried unsuccessfully to force open a window, he smashed another – and cut himself climbing into the house.
He stole a number of items including several pieces of gold jewellery, a TV, a Kindle Fire and the bathroom blinds.
During the course of the burglary Coleman left blood on the kitchen bin, which provided a positive DNA match.
