Burglar who taunted police jailed
A BURGLAR who taunted police by telling them to catch him has been jailed - while his accomplice was put behind bars for four years.
Jason Edwards challenged police to arrest him after telling them he had been burgling houses.
The 30-year-old, of Clayhill, Booker, was convicted by jurors of burglary after breaking into a house in Sheepcote Dell Road, Holmer Green, on June 13 and stealing electrical items and jewellery.
An Aylesbury Crown Court judge jailed him for 15 months - to go on top of a 21 month sentence he's already serving for handling stolen goods.
Edwards was helped during the burglary by 33-year-old Dominic Zammit, of Robinson Road, High Wycombe.
Zammit, who has eight previous convictions for burglary, was given a four year prison term by the judge.
Area Commander, Supt Gilbert Houalla, added: "Edwards used to taunt the police by telling us that he is burgling and would challenge us to catch him, and this result shows that we did.
"My message is clear. If anyone commits crime anywhere in the Wycombe District then we will do all we can, including working with our partners, to ensure these offenders are brought to justice."
