A MAN has been sentenced with burglary in connection with incidents in Warwick and Leamington last month.
Stephen Ewart, aged 37 of Everdon Road, Coventry, appeared at Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (June 28) where he was sentenced to 13 months’ imprisonment for four counts of burglary.
The burglaries took place at several properties in Warwick and Leamington in the early hours of Sunday June 19.
Car keys, wallets, credit cards, and money were stolen.
Ewart was arrested on the same day and later charged.
Following the sentencing, Det Sgt Jenny Baker from Leamington CID said: “The impact of dwelling burglaries is long lasting and should not be underestimated. To have someone break into your home, a place where you should feel safe is distressing.
“It is not only the financial implications of the offences but the emotional trauma that can have devastating effects on the lives of people within our community.
“Ewart showed a complete disregard for the property and wellbeing of the victims in this case.
“I hope that this sentence goes some way to helping them recover from their ordeal and reassures the public that Warwickshire Police is committed to bringing offenders to justice”.
