A prolific burglar from Birmingham who targeted homes across the country is now behind bars.
Daniel Shrimpton, aged 37, admitted two counts of burglary and asked for a further seven burglaries to be taken into consideration.
The court heard that Shrimpton had been linked to four burglaries in Staffordshire, which took place in Lichfield, Abbots Bromley, Colton and Barton-under-Needwood. Items including cash and jewellery were stolen.
On Wednesday 23 March he was handed a four-year and four-month sentence at Worcester Crown Court.
Detective Constable Grant Dixon, from Staffordshire Police said: “You cannot measure the distress that victims suffer after they find their home has been burgled. They not only face the cost of replacing any items stolen, and for repairs, but they also go through the devastation of feeling like their home has been intruded.
“We are pleased that Shrimpton is facing the consequences of these crimes and hope that it will offer some closure to those affected.”
