Man jailed for Leighton Buzzard burglary series

Alert message sent 13/06/2018 16:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

A man has been jailed for two years in relation to a series of burglaries in Leighton Buzzard.
Taylor Wilson, 19, of Brook Street, Leighton Buzzard, pleaded guilty to nine charges, including burglary, going equipped to burgle and taking of motor vehicles, and was sentenced at Luton Crown Court yesterday (Wednesday). 
Wilson targeted properties in Leighton Buzzard in the early hours of the morning in March and April this year, stealing car keys, electronics, and bank cards, and making his escape in the householders’ vehicles.  A prompt call to police by of one of the householders, who was in his lounge watching television when he heard Wilson enter his home, resulted in Wilson’s arrest and the subsequent charges. The vehicles he took were eventually recovered.
Detective Constable Andy Boston, who investigated the case, said: “Wilson crept into people’s homes, targeting properties for the vehicles parked outside. Once inside the homes, he helped himself to valuables along with car keys.
“He committed these burglaries during the early hours, with no thought for the sleeping occupants of the houses. I’m pleased that Wilson has now been taken off the streets and, I hope during his time in jail, that he reflects on his actions.
“We are committed to reducing burglary in Bedfordshire and this is a crime that both the courts and the police take very seriously.”
