A man has been jailed for a burglary that took place in Yoxford

Leroy Lawless, aged 40 from Albion Street in Saxmundham was sentenced to 33 months in jail at Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday 16 November following his guilty plea to burglary.

It follows an incident on 22 September 2023 at a property on Middleton Road in Yoxford at about 9pm. Lawless entered a property via an upstairs window using a ladder and stole items including a radio and an iPad belonging to the occupant of the dwelling.

The owner of the property received a call from a neighbour advising that a ladder was put up against the side of their property, and when police attended, they found an open upstairs window, a back patio door’s glass panel had been smashed and the back door was left open.

Police arrested him on 22 September at a car park in Dartford after police spotted him driving a vehicle suspected to have been used in the burglary. Police conducted a search and recovered the stolen items, a folding lock knife and two small bags of cannabis. He was subsequently charged with the offences.

He was also sentenced for possession of cannabis and driving whilst disqualified.

Pc Ian McBrearty from Lowestoft CID said: “Lawless is a prolific offender so to see him behind bars is of great satisfaction. Burglary is an intrusive crime and can cause considerable misery and distress for the victims so he will have plenty of time to reflect on his actions in jail.”
