Police were called to Victoria Drive at 4.50am on 3 November to a report of a man breaking into a property.
Officers attended and swiftly arrested a suspect. A window pane near the front door to the property had been broken.
Paul Tully, 37, of Ash Grove in Bognor Regis, subsequently pleaded guilty to the burglary and to a separate fraud by misrepresentation after he was found to be using a bank card not belonging to himself at a supermarket.
He was given prison sentences totalling 36 months at Portsmouth Crown Court on 2 December.
Detective Sergeant Ali Hutchings said; “This outcome was the result of a big team effort across our local CID and Response teams, resulting in another burglar being brought to justice.”
