Witham: Burglar jailed for Braintree crimes
9:20am Wednesday 6th March 2013 in News
A burglar has been jailed for more than four years after admitting a string of offences.
Ricky Ingram, 29, of Rickstones Road, Witham, appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court yesterday and was sentenced to four years and eight months after previously admitting five offences.
Ingram had admitted committing a burglary in Mary Ruck Way, Black Notley, on September 15, where a laptop and handbag were stolen.
He also admitted theft of a money bag containing about £120 from a Hackney cab in Vicarage Avenue, White Notley, on September 16, and an attempted burglary in the same street on the same day.
He also admitted driving without insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Braintree district commander, Chief Insp Nick Lee, said: "We are pleased Ricky Ingram has been kept off the streets of the district so he is unable to affect the lives of decent people.
"Essex Police is determined to bring those intent on committing offences to justice and we hope Ingram takes time while in prison to think about his actions.”
