A 41-year-old man has been sentenced to a total of nine years for a number of offences including burglaries in Milton Keynes.

Bryan Burke, of Meadow Bank, Towcester, Northamptonshire was convicted and sentenced to nine years’ imprisonment on Wednesday at Northampton Crown Court.

He pleaded guilty to 11 counts of burglary dwelling, three motor vehicle thefts and charges of fraud and handling stolen goods.

The offences were all committed in Milton Keynes, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire between February and June 2014.

Among evidence presented in court was a statement from one of Burke’s victims, which discussed the impact of a burglary on their home, including the loss of irreplaceable sentimental items and photographs.

Det Sgt Gareth Burns said: “As a significant number of these offences took place in Northamptonshire, the joint investigation into Burke’s crimes was led by Northamptonshire Police with support from Thames Valley Police.

“A number of his victims were from the Milton Keynes area and I hope his lengthy sentence helps provide some closure to them and all the others whose homes were affected as he carried out his crimes.”
