DNA helps catch burglar

Have your say

A SOUTH Yorkshire man has been jailed for three-and-a-half years for burgling a house in Derbyshire after DNA linked him to the scene.

Anthony Bramall was sentenced to 42 months at Derby Crown Court for burgling the house in Cromford.

He had previously pleaded guilty to burgling a house on Ridgewood Drive on August 28 last year.

Bramall broke in through a window, leaving blood on the frame which led officers to him.

The court was told the 46-year-old was arrested at his home on Manor Oaks Court, Wybourn, Sheffield.
