Repeat burglary offender sentenced to three years in prison.

Colin Richardson, 30, of Millhouse Caravan Site, Askern, Doncaster, appeared before Sheffield Crown Court yesterday morning (Wednesday 15 November) sentenced to three years in prison for two counts of burglary.

Richardson, who pleaded guilty to the offences in October, was arrested and charged with the burglaries after forensic evidence left at the scene was used to link him to the crimes.

PC Joshua Heath who led the investigation explains: “Following reports Aphrodite Day Spa and The Honey Comb had both been broken into, investigations were launched into the incidents and officers began working to gathering evidence.”

In the early hours of Sunday 15 October, it was reported Aphrodite Day Spa, Station Road, Carcroft had been broken into and the till had been stolen. The following morning a further report was received stating sometime between late Saturday 14 October and 4am on Sunday 15 October, entry had been forced into The Honey Comb, Owston Road, Carcroft.

PC Heath continued: “On attending the scene of the crimes, specialist crime scene investigators were able to recover different pieces of forensic evidence. After analysing the evidence gathered Richardson was positively identified and arrested by officers.”

“Based on this evidence and subsequent information gathered from other enquiries, Richardson was later charged with two counts of burglary and remanded into custody.”

“I’m glad Richardson has now been brought to justice and I hope this result provides reassurance that we are committed to tackling burglary and will always work where possible, to bring offenders before the courts.”
