Prolific Burglar Jailed for More Than Three Years

Wednesday 7 April, 2021

A prolific burglar has been jailed for over three years following a series of offences at the beginning of the year.

Between January and March 2021, a number of burglaries of garages were committed across various location in Bradford.

Properties were broken into during the three-month spree and items such as power tools and electrical equipment were stolen.

Police investigating the incidents were able to forensically link Jerome Williams to multiple scenes and on 13 March, he was charged with six counts of burglary.

Jerome Williams, 27, of no fixed address, appeared at Bradford Crown Court today (7 April) after he pleaded guilty to all six offences and was sentenced to a total of three-and-a-half years in prison.

Detective Constable Jessica Levitt, of Bradford’s District Crime Team, said: “We welcome the sentence which has been handed down to Williams today, following the high volume of offences he committed in a short period of time.

“The team did extensive enquiries into this series of offences and worked tirelessly to ensure we caught the individual responsible. We were able to forensically link Williams to each of the offences.

“We hope that this sentence will act as a reassurance to the public that all offences of burglary are taken very seriously and we are committed to bringing the perpetrators to justice.”
