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.”
