He pleaded guilty to both counts of burglary. Two further burglary offences were also taken into consideration.

Detective Constable Adam Blake said: “Sarul is an opportunistic burglar, however he did show remorse for his actions.

“Burglary remains a top priority for the force because it leaves victims feeling vulnerable and can have a massive impact on their lives.”
