A ‘prolific’ thief is back behind bars after pleading guilty to a burglary in Hedon last month.
Nathan Hilton, 31, of Cladshaw, Hull, appeared at Hull Crown Court this morning (Thursday 3 June) and pleaded guilty to breaking into a property on Waterland Close on 1st May.
He admitted to stealing a set of keys and taking the car from the drive. This was recovered nearby by officers and he was swiftly arrested.
He has been sentenced to spend the next 876 days in prison (almost two-and-a-half years).
Detective Sergeant Andy Bradley said: “Burglary can be a very violating crime, so I am pleased to see Mr Hilton is now in prison and unable to cause any further harm.
“We are committed to investigating burglaries robustly to take offenders off the streets.
“It’s important to us that our communities feel safe, especially when they’re in their own homes.”
