A LEAMINGTON man and a Warwick man were among three burglars to be sentenced to a total of 13 years and three months in prison today (Friday).
Matthew Evans, 27, of Cymbeline Way, Warwick, 25-year-old-Samuel Gold of Masters Road, Leamington, and Daniel John Rollins, 21, of Tiddington near Stratford, had pleaded guilty to conspiring to burgle, which incorporated 12 offences of commercial burglary in the Leamington, Warwick and Kenilworth areas between 17 and 28 of July 2012, at an earlier hearing at Warwick Crown Court in Leamington in November.
Evans was sentenced to two-and-a-half years for conspiracy to commit burglary.
Gold (pictured below) was sentenced to two-and-a-half years for conspiracy to commit burglary and three-and-a-half years to run concurrently for two burglary dwellings.
Rollins was sentenced to three years for conspiracy to commit burglary and a further 35 offences of theft and garage burglaries were taken into consideration by the judge on sentencing.
He was also sentenced to a further 21 months for a burglary dwelling in Hamilton Road, Tiddington, in May 2012 to run concurrently.
Det Sgt Tony Power, who led the investigation, said: “Operation Power was a complete and thorough investigation by officers with a successful conclusion and we are delighted at the sentences. The result demonstrates that Warwickshire police will go to great lengths to both reduce and detect as much crime as possible. All three now have a long time to reflect on their criminality.”
