A 'six-strike' burglar has admitted a one day crime spree in Norwich in which he targeted two homes and used stolen credit cards.
Michael Dyer appeared at Norwich Crown Court this morning charged with multiple burglaries, theft and fraud.
He admitted stealing a purse, car keys and a laptop from a home on Dereham Road, and two purses and a set of house keys from a house on Overbury Road, both on September 28.
He also admitted four counts of fraud - using credit cards at stores including Cardtronics, the Drayton Road Post Office, and the Co-Op and Barclays bank on Aylsham Road on the same day.
Dyer pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal damage, to a door and a fence.
