Bradford man jailed for burglary and theft

A 27 year old man from Bradford has been jailed for two years and five months after pleading guilty to burglary and theft from motor vehicles. The offences happened in early July in the Freshfield Gardens area of Allerton and later that month he was arrested trying to break into another vehicle.

Matthew Spaven of Lower Grange, Allerton was charged with four offences of burglary, theft from a car, vehicle interference and commercial burglary.

I am proud of the hard work officers went to in arresting this man and putting him before the court for committing a number of crimes in our neighbourhood.

"I am also pleased to see the courts have supported our hard working communities with this substantial custodial sentence.

"He will now miss Christmas and I hope this serves as deterrent to others who may be tempted to commit such crimes in Bradford."

– Inspector Andrew Croasdale, North Bradford Neighbourhood Policing Team
