Friday 04 April 2014, 9:23am
A man has been sentenced to three years and eight months imprisonment for a burglary and theft of motor vehicle in Oxford.
Justin Bourton, aged 35, of Dashwood Road, Oxford, pleaded guilty and was sentenced at Oxford Crown Court yesterday (3/4).
Bourton was sentenced to 44 months imprisonment for burglary and 12 months imprisonment for theft of a motor vehicle, to run concurrently.
The charges relate to an incident on 4 July 2013, when Bourton burgled a house in Courtland Road, Oxford and stole a BMW from the property.
PC George Atkinson, investigating officer, said: “Following Bourton’s guilty plea, he also admitted a further nine offences.
“Three of these were dwelling burglaries, five non-dwelling burglaries and one offence of criminal damage.
“These offences formed part of a crime series in the Rose Hill and Iffley area of Oxford in the summer of 2013 and the sentence will now protect the public from his offending.
“In terms of the prison sentence, justice has been served and the victims can now move with their lives. It has been a lengthy investigation which started with us sharing the initial crime report and some pictures from the crime scene in our 24-hour burglary tweetathon in July last year and I am extremely pleased that they have had the chance to see the conclusion of that initial crime report.”
