Teen burgled Haddenham home of family who took him in
A TEENAGER who burgled the home of a family who had put him up has been jailed.
Steven Sibley, 19, had turned up at his old school friend’s home in Haddenham, in August, and the family agreed to let him stay.
He left after joining the family for a birthday meal on August 16. The following day the home was burgled and laptops, iPod, television, a sat nav and a camera were stolen.
Sibley later cashed a �250 cheque from a chequebook also stolen from the home.
Police found his fingerprints on the bedroom window which the stolen property was removed through.
