A prolific burglar's been jailed for more than two years after raiding a home in Suffolk while the owner was in hospital.

Cirean Brytz, of Selwyn Road in Gorleston, was jailed for 876 days at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday, 14 August, where he admitted burgling a home in Somerleyton near Lowestoft between 21 and 26 June.

The break-in was reported to police after the householder returned home following a few days in hospital.

Antique silverware including bowls and jugs, jewellery including gold watches, a laptop computer and a quantity of cigarettes were among the items stolen.

Following house-to-house inquiries, officers spoke to a nearby resident who had private CCTV. Brytz was quickly identified from the footage, cycling past the home around the time of the offence, and he was arrested by detectives from Lowestoft CID on 14 July.

At the time of his arrest officers also conducted a search of his home and recovered a number of stolen items, including three pocket watches.

Brytz was prolific in his offending and was on licence for 11 offences of dwelling burglary at the time of the break-in. "The courts treat home burglary very seriously and this is illustrated by the sentence that has been handed down. Incidents of this nature remain comparatively rare in Suffolk and this sends a strong message to those who commit such offences that you will be caught and will face a substantial prison sentence.

– Detective Inspector Matthew Adams of Lowestoft CID
