Gary Colin Allan, 47, from Carlisle, admitted a charge of burglary and theft at Preston Crown Court on December 4.

He stole cash, cigarettes and jewellery from two homes in Grinsdale and Lismore Place, Carlisle, in September.

Detective Constable Ian Hodgson, who led the investigation against Allan, said he was delighted at the sentence handed down and warned people against committing similar offences.

He said: “Criminals who choose to burgle people’s homes can expect Cumbria Police to pursue them and bring them to justice.

“One of the main priorities for Carlisle CID is to reduce the number of dwelling burglaries committed in North Cumbria and by removing the likes of Gary Allan from the streets we go a long way to achieving that objective.”
