Main article content
Following a Thames Valley Police investigation, a man has been sentenced for six counts of attempted burglary in Slough.
Yesterday (13/11), at Reading Crown Court, Robert O’Brien, aged 36, of no fixed abode, was found guilty of six counts of attempted burglary by a jury.
At the same hearing, O’Brien was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment.
Between midnight and 10am on 28 June, O’Brien attempted to enter six different properties in Adephi Gardens, Shaggy Calf Lane, Bradley Road, Finefield Walk and Duke Place, Slough. At each of the properties, he tried to open the front door but was unsuccessful on each try.
An investigation was launched and O’Brien was arrested and charged on 4 July and was remanded in custody.
Case Investigator, Pauline Carrie, of the Priority Crime Team based at Slough police station, said: “I hope that O’Brien’s sentence demonstrates that Thames Valley Police will not tolerate burglary and we will always work hard to pursue offenders and put them before the courts.
“Our investigation has removed O’Brien from the streets, and I hope he will use his time in custody to reflect upon his actions.”
UPDATE (15/11): O'Brien's charge date has been amended to 4 July.
