A Sheffield crook has avoided a jail sentence after admitting burglary.
David Allen, aged 26, of Stradbroke Road, Richmond, walked free from court after a judge handed out a five month prison sentence, suspended for one year.
Allen must undertake 80 hours' of unpaid work and abide by a six-week curfew from 8pm until 7am.
The case relates to a burglary in the Moorgate area of Rotherham in January.
Investigating officer Detective Sargent Sam Blakemore said: “This result is thanks to the hard work of our officers and our ongoing commitment to tackling burglary.”
