A burglar who repeatedly targeted the same victim over five days has been jailed for three years. 

Craig Eyre, 25, of no fixed abode, first broke into the property in Maltmans Lane, Gerrards Cross on July 24, and stole a rotivator, steam cleaner, cufflinks and keys.

He returned to the property the following day and over the next four days he stole keys and agricultural tools.

On July 29 he also caused criminal damage to the property.

He was found guilty of two dwelling burglary offences, one burglary non dwelling and one count of criminal damage at Aylesbury Crown Court after a two day trial on October 27. 

Investigating officer Detective Constable Emma Calow, of Amersham Investigation Hub, said: “Eyre showed a blatant disregard for the victims and their property by returning again and again to steal what he wanted.

“I am glad that justice has been done for the victims and I would like to thank them for their patience and support in getting the case to court.”
