A BURGLAR, who broke in to 16 homes, has been jailed for two-and-a-half years

Luke Monk, of no fixed abode, pleaded guilty to burgling a house in Victoria Road, Sandiacre, on October 20 last year.

When he appeared at Derby Crown Court on Friday, the 23-year-old asked recorder David Mason to take 15 other burglaries into account when passing sentence.

Det Insp Tony Brittan, of the burglary unit, said: “It’s pleasing to be able to tell 16 victims that the man responsible for breaking into their homes has confessed to his crimes and is now behind bars.”
