Nicola Watts (49) of Hessle Road, Hull was sentenced last Friday (3 April) to five years and eight months in jail for a series of distraction burglaries in Hull.
She was convicted of three burglaries at Hanover Court on 26 January 2020 where she deceived the occupier into letting her into their homes.
Following the sentencing Detective Sergeant Andrew Bradley said, “Nicola Watts has been given a significant prison sentence which is welcomed by the elderly victims in this case and by all those involved in this investigation.
“Watts used various guises to con her way into the homes of elderly and vulnerable victims and once inside stole from them. She committed these offences with no thought to the long term affect these crimes would have on her victims.
“I hope while she is in prison she reflects on her actions. This sentence should also serve as warning to anybody else offending against the vulnerable in our community that we will do everything in our power to bring cases such as this to court and get justice for victims.”
