Man jailed for burgling same home three times and his family home

Published

on

A PRESTON man was yesterday (Tuesday 21 January) imprisoned for over three years after attempting to burgle the same property three separate times, and then burgling his estranged family’s home.

Anthony Moss, 24, of no known address, was today imprisoned for a total of three years and four months at Preston Crown Court having been charged with three counts of dwelling burglary with intent to steal, one count of attempted dwelling burglary with intent to steal, one count of theft from a motor vehicle and two counts of fraud by false representation.

Two of the dwelling burglary offences and the attempted dwelling burglary offence all took place at the same address on Fulwood Row, Preston. Moss burgled the property twice, on the nights of Monday 23 September and Thursday 26 September of last year, before then attempting to burgle the property again during the day on Sunday 29 September of last year. During the third attempt, Moss was discovered by the occupant, and attempted to escape by jumping from a first floor balcony, fracturing his ankle in the process. The theft from a motor vehicle offence took place during the second burglary offence on Thursday 26 September when Moss used car keys he had taken from the property to steal a mountain bike from a car at the property. The two fraud offences took place between Monday 23 September and Tuesday 24 September when Moss used debit and credit cards taken during the first burglary offence on Monday 23 September to purchase goods.

Finally, the third dwelling burglary offence took place between Tuesday 24 September and Friday 27 September of last year when Moss used a door key he had obtained from his younger brother under duress to burgle the home of his estranged family while they were away on holiday.

DI Warren Atkinson said; “This is an excellent result for the victims of the burglaries. Moss has shown little remorse for his offending, and clearly gave no consideration to the impact his offending, given he attempted to burgle the same house three times!

“Burglaries are an iconic crime, and all studies show these offences have a significant impact on the victims.

“This sentence sends out a strong message to anybody considering committing burglary offences in Lancashire, and all officers will continue to work hard to prevent burglaries and bring offenders to justice.”

Anyone with information or concerns about burglary can contact police on 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. No personal details are taken, information is not traced or recorded and you will not go to court
