Two men caught on CCTV breaking into home with crowbar jailed

Shane Ferguson and Jason Kirkup.

Two men who broke into a house in Cambridgeshire using a crowbar have been jailed for more than four years between them.

35-year-old, Shane Ferguson, and 37-year-old, Jason Kirkup, forced their way into the property in Impington near Histon back in March. The pair left empty handed when they realised someone was upstairs.

A woman who drove them to the scene was also given a suspended sentence.

Bouland visited the property just before the burglary to check if anyone was at home but was not aware that the victim’s daughter was upstairs.

They were also clearly not aware they were being filmed on CCTV and a resident had also reported Bouland’s suspicious behaviour just before the burglary.

We are committed to arresting those carrying out burglaries in the county and this case shows how important it is that people keep their eyes and ears open and report anything suspicious immediately.
