Dale Poppleton, 39, of Ash Mount, Bradford appeared at Bradford Crown Court yesterday (2 November) to face charges of burglary
In June this year, he broke into a family home in Wibsey and assisted other suspects in stealing two cars from the driveway.
Then in the following month, he broke into another home in Bingley, this time taking an Audi, handbag and purse, credit cards, house keys and cash from the property.
He was then detected across in Greater Manchester and was arrested. At the time of his arrest, officers found the Audi registration places, the Audi key fob and the handbag in his possession.
He was charged with two offences of burglary.
Detective Inspector Damian Roebuck, of the Bradford District Crime Team, said: “We are pleased with the sentence which was handed to Poppleton for the burglary offences committed this year.
“These offences caused considerable distress to his victims
“Poppleton is a prolific offender and also tried to evade police following on from the burglaries he committed. I hope this sentence reassured local residents in Bradford that we do all we can to track down and bring perpetrators to justice.”
Poppleton was jailed for three years and nine months.
Anyone with any information about crime in their area is asked to contact the police via 101 or report it via the West Yorkshire Police website.
