Burglar jailed - Luton

11/07/2017

A man, who broke into the Luton home of a 79-year-old woman while she was there and stole her purse and bank cards, was jailed for four years today, Tuesday, 11 July 2017, when he appeared at Luton Crown Court.

Marvin Warmington, aged 41, got into the property in West Street, Luton by an unlocked back door on 29 January this year. Within hours he used the woman's bank cards having already taken £70 in cash that was in her purse.

The court heard that despite being in the house at the time, the victim was unaware as Warmington crept in and snatched her property.

Judge Phillip Bartle was told it was on 17 February this year that police searching for the wanted man, went to an address in Dunstable to locate him. Warmington tried to escape by climbing out of a rear window, but he was caught and detained. More stolen bank cards were found to be in his possession and in a bag he had were two screw drivers and gloves.

Warmington, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to Burglary, two offences of fraud by false representation, three offences of handling stolen goods, and six offences of possessing articles for the use in fraud.

He was jailed for a total of four years.
