A BURGLAR who also stole hundreds of pounds worth of Blu-Ray DVDs and a pair of rubbish bins from Asda has been jailed for more than two years.

Appearing before Swindon Crown Court, Graham Kidd was sentenced to two years and two months’ imprisonment.

The 36-year-old, of Westwood Avenue, admitted the two burglaries and a shoplifting charge when he appeared in the dock at Swindon Magistrates’ Court in November.

He stole clothing, jewellery from a house on Jupiter Close, Blunsdon, on November 19, and a cash safe from a house on Severn Avenue in Pinehurst on the same day.

On November 11, he was caught on CCTV stealing scores of pricey Blu-Ray DVDs and sweets - together worth £1,455 - from the Orbital retail park Asda. He also took two bins worth £40.

Wiltshire Police issued a witness appeal in a bid to bring Kidd to heel for that theft.

Judge Jason Taylor QC sentenced Kidd to 14 months for the first burglary and 12 months for the second. He was given a further month inside for the shoplifting, which will be served concurrently.

He will serve half his sentence before he is automatically eligible for release.
