A WOMAN burgled 13 homes across Cambridge plundering valuables worth more than £10,000.

Kelly Doggett, 21, of Ditton Fields, Cambridge, carried out a mini crime wave, breaking into more than a dozen homes in the space of just six weeks.

She was arrested on February 22 after several witnesses had seen a woman matching her description near the scene of some of the burglaries.

She admitted burgling homes in Thorpe Way and High Ditch Road before confessing to a string of other burglaries.

The offences all occurred between December 27 and February 6.

At Cambridge Crown Court on Wednesday (April 10) she was sentenced to 16 months' imprisonment, suspended for two years, ordered to carry out 200 hours' unpaid work and also made subject of a two-year supervision order.

Detective Constable Andrew McKeane, who investigated, said: "Doggett caused misery to more than a dozen families by breaking into their homes.

"We will not tolerate this type of offending and will continue to target anyone we suspect of being involved in such criminality."
