A teenager who burgled a home in his own street has been convicted.
18-year-old Abdul Qadeer, of Radman Grove, Greenleys, pleaded guilty to the burglary at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court on March 20.
Ten days earlier he had burgled a property in the same street by breaking in via a ground floor window while the house was unoccupied. After searching the house he stole a phone, a laptop, a camera and a quantity of cash.
Magistrates handed him a 10-week suspended prison sentence, suspended for a year. He was also ordered to complete 100 hours of unpaid work and pay £900 compensation to the victim.
Investigating officer Det Sgt Simon Mountain said: “The victim was left shocked and upset by the burglary. She was put in fear and made to feel unsafe in her own home.
“It was the professional and diligent work conducted by our detectives and crime scene investigators which led to the quick arrest and sentencing of Qadeer.”
