Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for burglary and other offences in Reading.
Jacob Trussler, aged 35, of no fixed abode pleaded guilty to one count each of burglary dwelling, fraud by false representation and theft of a motor vehicle at a hearing on Thursday (13/2) at Reading Crown Court.
At the same hearing Trussler was sentenced to a total of two years and ten months’ imprisonment.
It is in connection with an incident on 26 September last year in which Trussler took a car from the driveway of a property in Ennerdale Drive and a burglary that occurred at a property in Glebe Road on 9 October. He then went on to sell some of the items that he took in the burglary the same day.
Trussler was arrested on 12 October and charged the following day.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Nick Packham, based at Loddon Valley police station said, “I am pleased that Trussler pleaded guilty and will now spend time in prison to reflect upon his actions.
“Thames Valley Police take all reports of burglary and theft seriously. This behaviour is not acceptable and we will work tirelessly to bring offenders to justice.”
