A man from Kempston Hardwick has been sent to prison for a burglary in Bletchley.
Jerry Johnson, 49, of Chimney Corner, pleaded guilty to one count of burglary at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday, August 2.
He was sentenced to a total of two years and five months imprisonment the same day.
On June 8, Johnson approached the victim, a 74-year-old man, and offered gardening work which was accepted.
Johnson then returned to the address and entered the property before stealing a safe containing jewellery.
Detective Constable Kerry Mitchell of Thames Valley Police said: “We would like to remind members of the public not to accept offers of work from people canvassing door to door.”
