A burglar who stole electronics and jewellery from a home in Hythe has been sentenced to four years and six months imprisonment.
Steven Parker who's 44 and formerly of Benson Lane in Hawkinge, targeted the property in Seabrook Road on 3rd November 2015.
The court heard that Parker forced open the front door of the property after smashing a window. Once inside he removed numerous items of jewellery and a tablet computer worth more than £1,000 in total.
Inside officers found the stolen tablet in a rubbish bin and he was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
Hampshire Police have released photos of stolen jewellery in a bid to find the owners.
The items feature on the Constabulary's Is This Yours? site. It is believed most were stolen during burglaries across Hampshire, particularly the New Forest, as well as in the Dorset and Wiltshire areas, during 2014 and 2015.
