Man, 26, jailed for burglary and theft offences - with police finding him in stolen coat
A MAN has been jailed for nearly three years for a range of offences in Swanmore and Eastleigh.
Josh Barnes, 26, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty at Winchester Crown Court to breaching a non-molestation order, a burglary, and a theft – all of which happened between December 10-11 last year.
The court heard how Barnes had carried out a burglary at a home in Dodds Lane, Swanmore, on December 11, where he stole jewellery, cash, electrical items and a coat.
The items were later recovered at an address known to be used by Barnes, who was wearing the stolen coat when he was arrested.
On the same day, Barnes stole various items from an address he had been staying in on Twyford Road in Eastleigh. Most of the items, including crossbow bolts and clothes, were recovered by police.
Barnes was sentenced 35 months jail and will have to pay a victim surcharge of £190.
