A man who burgled a home in Peterborough has been jailed for four years.
On August 21, Nadeem Nazir, 33, of Windmill Street, Millfield, entered a house on the same road he lives in and stole a television from the lounge whilst the occupant was in another room.
Nazir was later arrested after CCTV footage linked him to the incident.
Today (September 30) Nazir pleaded guilty to burglary and was sentenced at Peterborough Crown Court.
DC Dave May said: “This was an immoral act by a man who deliberately targeted an elderly lady in order to steal from her.
“The sentence should serve as a warning to others and highlight how seriously burglary is taken in Cambridgeshire.”
The force is prioritising burglary as part of Operation Hunter, which aims to put offenders before the courts while urging residents to take home security seriously.
