A burglar twice targeted the same Norwich office block, stealing items worth more than £3,000.
Derek Campbell, 39, broke into offices in Union Building, Rose Lane, on January 31, stealing an Apple computer worth £1,500 and then struck again the next day, taking an X-box and other items worth £1,750, Norwich Crown Court heard.
Chris Youell, prosecuting, said Campbell also caused criminal damage to the Co-op store in Hall Road, on March 18, when he caused damage to a door causing £1,600 worth of damage.
Campbell, of Bracondale, Norwich, admitted burglary, criminal damage and possession of a bladed article and was jailed for nine months.
John Morgans, for Campbell, said that he wanted to change and get help for his alcohol problem: “He is desperate to change.”
