One attempted burglary of a property in Milton Keynes on June.26

A further nine burglary offences were taken into consideration.

At the hearing, Dodson pleaded guilty to all of the offences and was sentenced to three years in prison.

Following the sentencing, PC Karen Waters said: “This investigation was a team effort involving detectives from the investigation hub and the Burglary Management Unit based at Milton Keynes.

“Thanks to a thorough investigation, he was arrested, charged and brought before the courts.

“Burglary can be an incredibly intrusive and disturbing crime which leaves victims feeling violated and distressed, regardless of whether anything was stolen or not. I hope this sentence highlights how seriously we have investigated these offences to ensure that Dodson was brought to justice for his actions.”
