PC Callum Wade said: “Homer is a prolific burglar with a catalogue of previous convictions. It is disappointing to see when someone doesn’t learn from their previous actions, despite spending time in prison.

“For as long as Homer continues to offend and not change his ways, we will continue to put him before the courts.”
