Concern for Portsmouth teenager who has been missing for two weeks

A PUB burglar has been jailed for three years.

Homeless Joshua Clarke, 33, raided The Trafalgar pub in Gosport on September 30.

At Portsmouth Crown Court, a judge jailed him for three years after Clarke admitted breaching a suspended sentence.

The court previously heard Clarke had burgled a rape victim’s home – not knowing her past – leaving her terrified following the raid.

He was given a suspended sentence after that crime, but the burglary at the pub put him in breach of the sentence.

Cash was taken from the pub by Clarke, police said.
