A man has been jailed for 16 weeks after pleading guilty to breaking into a number of cars in Ogbourne St George.
Lee Allen, 32, of Station Road, Swindon, appeared at Swindon Magistrates Court this morning (Wednesday 23 December).
He pleaded guilty to ffee counts of theft from a motor vehicle and five counts of motor vehicle interference.
The offences relate to a spate of incidents in the early hours of 28 November when vehicles in the village were broken into.
A police officer examined CCTV footage from the scene and recognised Allen, so he was subsequently arrested.
PC Alanna Wakeford, from the neighbourhood policing team in Marlborough, said: “The items stolen from the vehicles, such as sunglasses and CDs, were of relatively low financial value.
“However, this spate of incidents caused a great deal of frustration and inconvenience for the numerous victims, and I am pleased to see this sentence being passed today.”
