Lee Cheney, aged 37, of Bodmin Road, Hull appeared at Hull Crown Court on Wednesday 28 September and pleaded guilty to an attempted burglary on Grimscott Close and a ‘distraction’ burglary at the home of a 90-year-old woman on Navenby Grove in Hull. The judge sentenced him to four years in jail.
Following the court case Sergeant Andrew Bradley said, “I am pleased to see that Lee Cheney has been brought to justice for these offences.
“To target an elderly vulnerable lady in her home is simply abhorrent and has caused untold distress for his victim. Although not physically harmed in the burglary she was extremely upset and alarmed.”
Lee Cheney was arrested in August and interviewed in relation to an attempt burglary at Grimscott Close, Hull on the 17 August, where he had entered the victims address through an open back door and was disturbed when the victim had seen him on her camara doorbell. He was also questioned in relation to a ‘distraction’ burglary at a house on Navenby Grove, where he gained entry to the address of a 90-year-old woman and stole a jewellery box and a bank card before withdrawing £500 cash from a machine nearby.
He was charged with the two burglaries and the associated frauds and was remanded in custody to appear before Hull Magistrates Court on the 23 August. He later appeared at Crown court where he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years in prison for the offences.
