A stupid criminal has landed himself in jail after taking a selfie of himself following a burglary and sent it to the victim’s work colleagues.

Ashley Keast aged 25 from Norfolk landed himself in jail for two years eight months and Anthony Hunt from Garbroads Crescent, Thrybergh, who was sentenced to 18 months for burglary.

Both pleaded guilty to the offence, after they had broken in to a house on Fernleigh Drive, Brinsworth on September 11th 2013.

When the householder came back from holiday days later they discovered the rear patio door had been forced open and a large quantity of electrical items, sentimental jewellery and an Audi A4, together worth around £27,000, had been stolen.

Keast had nicked a sim card from the house and using another phone took a ‘selfie’ which posted on to ‘whats app’ which then sent to the victims work colleagues who contacted police.

They were arrested the following day.
