Two men from Doncaster have been given prison sentences totalling almost seven years for breaking into people’s homes.
Colin Richardson, aged 26, of Poplar Road, Skellow, pleaded guilty to a burglary he committed at a property on Moss Road in Askern on Friday, March 3.
He received a three year and nine month sentence when he appeared at Doncaster Crown Court.
Simon Smith, aged 22, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to a burglary he committed at a property on Kings Road near Doncaster town centre on Wednesday, July 10.
He was given a three year sentence by a judge at Sheffield Crown Court.
Detective Inspector Paul Dickinson, of Doncaster CID, said: “Burglary is a very intrusive crime that can leave the victims feeling vulnerable and unnerved in their own homes.
“I hope these sentences send out a clear message.”
