Serial burglar gets three years
7:40am Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
A SERIAL burglar has been jailed for a string of break-ins that netted more than £25,000.
Bobby Everett was recruited to drive others to locations in Essex and Hertfordshire and burgle houses that were targeted because of their quiet locations.
But a court heard last week police were able to place Everett at the scenes as the car he had hired was fitted with a tracking device.
By the time he was arrested, the 23-year-old had been involved in burglaries in Leigh, Billericay, Doddinghurst, Chelmsford, Upminster and St Albans.
Everett, from Dunnings Lane, Bulphan, was jailed for three years after he admitted nine burglaries and one attempted burglary.
An estimated £25,000 of property was stolen but only a small amount recovered, the court was told.
Everett's barrister, Janet Wing, said he was easily led and got involved as he needed cash for drink and drugs.
