'Callous' and 'uncaring' burglar jailed for eight years

A ‘prolific’ burglar has been jailed for eight years after pleading guilty to a string of offences throughout Lowestoft and other areas.

Stan Smith, 23, of no fixed abode was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court for crimes that took place in October this year.

He admitted burglary and aggravated burglary in Lowestoft, Diss, Snape and Halesworth.

Police called him ‘callous’ and ‘uncaring’.

Stan Smith is a prolific burglar and the sentence handed down by the judge of eight years in jail demonstrates what a callous individual he is, with no thought given to the distress and upset he caused by committing this string of offences.

The fact he showed no sign of remorse in court is another clear sign of his insensitive and uncaring character.

He stole various items including cash, jewellery and mobile phones when he committed the offences. Burglary is an invasion of people’s homes and their personal space and can be very upsetting and distressing for the victims.
