A man has been sentenced to a total of four years’ imprisonment for a burglary in Bletchley.
Dinesh Bhudia, 31, of Dunvegan Close, Bletchley was sentenced after he was found guilty of one count of burglary dwelling.
On May 19, at about 4.23am, Bhudia entered the home of a woman, 69, who had given him the keys to her property in order to complete building work during the day.
The victim woke to find Bhudia in her room, and he was seen taking her handbag.
Bhudia was arrested shortly after the victim came to police and was charged on on July 23.
PC Steve King, said: “This offence was committed at the home address of a vulnerable female who wanted some work done in her garden.
“Bhudia was hired by the victim and had been given keys in order to do this building work.
“He abused her trust and used these keys in order to steal from her.
“Hopefully his conviction can give some peace of mind to his victim.
“This result demonstrates that those who take advantage of vulnerable people and burgle their homes will receive significant custodial sentences.”
