A Sheffield man has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to carrying out burglaries at two properties.

Callum Froggatt aged 28, of Batemoor, admitted at Sheffield Crown Court on Wednesday stealing items including leather handbags, costume jewellery, a passport and £250 of premium bonds.

CCTV footage captured Froggatt climbing over a fence before smashing glass in the back door of a property on Chesterfield Road South on January 6 2015.

Froggatt was caught entering the property and leaving with a bag of items from the house including jewellery.

He was also charged in relation to a burglary at a property in Jordanthorpe on January 14 when he left a clear footprint at the scene. The owner returned home to find the door panel kicked in and a television and necklace had been stolen.

On the same day, officers found Froggatt in possession of a LCD television and he was arrested on suspicion of burglary.

Investigating officer PC Steve Walch, of Sheffield West crime team, said: “These offences caused the victims unnecessary distress and inconvenience and we cannot underestimate the personal impact that burglary has on people.

“We are grateful to the victims for their support in bringing Callum Froggatt to justice and hope this case serves as a reminder to people that we will not tolerate any criminal behaviour.”
