A burglar is starting a prison sentence after he targeted a business in Faversham.
Between 2 and 5 August 2020, Keir Jackson went to a commercial premises in Abbey Fields and broke in by forcing open some doors. Whilst there, he stole a quantity of tools valued at around £12,000.
The owners discovered the burglary and alerted the police. Crime Scene Investigators attended and recovered Jackson’s fingerprint from a barrel he had moved at the property.
Jackson, of Lower Road, Faversham was arrested on 17 September and later charged with the burglary.
He pleaded guilty at Maidstone Crown Court and on Friday 25 March 2022, 39-year-old Jackson was sentenced to two years and three months in prison.
Investigating officer, PC Daniel Evans, said: ‘This type of burglary can prevent employees from doing their work and affect potential profits for a business.
‘Jackson chose not to consider the impact his actions would have and merely considered the money he could make from selling the stolen property.
‘He should be ashamed of his conduct and fully deserves a prison sentence.’
