A BURGLAR has been jailed for 30 months after stealing hundreds of pounds worth of goods from an OAP complex.

John Rae, (pictured left) of No Mans Lane, Risley, was snared after police found his fingerprints and DNA on a conservatory door at the old people’s complex in the grounds of Risley Hall.

On August 25 at Derby Crown Court the 29-year-old pleaded guilty to stealing a flat screen TV, a gold chain and a mobile phone from a part of the property where a 74-year-old woman lived.

When he was arrested, he was also charged with possession of cannabis but no separate penalty was imposed.
