Man jailed for theft

A MAN has been jailed after he stole watches and cash from a couple who had employed him to do building work at their home.

Kyle Tams was sentenced to 21 months after he pleaded guilty to burgling a house in Ribblesdale Road, Long Eaton, last August.

He asked Recorder Christopher Millington QC to take one other offence into consideration when passing sentence at Nottingham Crown Court on Friday February 17.

He was arrested after crime scene investigators found his fingerprints in the bedroom of the house.
