An Ipswich man has been jailed after being found guilty of committing two burglaries which took place in the town.
Daniel Beresford, aged 28, of Shetland Close, stood accused of two counts of burglary at addresses in Bucklesham Road and one count of attempted burglary at an address in Felixstowe Road, all occurring on Friday 19 September 2014.
Beresford pleaded not guilty to all three charges, but was found guilty of the two burglary offences by a jury at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday 23 February, before being sentenced to six years imprisonment yesterday. He was cleared of the charge of attempted burglary.
Speaking after sentencing Detective Constable Chris Townrow, of Ipswich CID, said: “I am pleased with the sentence handed down by the court and I hope that it brings comfort to the victims.Â Burglary is an extremely distressing crime; to have your home entered and have your possessions stolen can be very upsetting. I hope that this sentence serves as a message to anyone involved in this type of offence that it will not be tolerated and we will pursue those responsible.â€
