A Lowestoft man has been given a suspended prison sentence after stealing items including a 65-inch TV.

Wayne Mills, 32, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday after pleading guilty to two burglaries and one charge of handling stolen goods.

He was sentenced to 24 months suspended for two years and was ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work.

He stole a 65-inch Samsung TV from a house in Station Road, Brampton in June 2016 and tools from a property being renovated in St Cross South Elmham in May last year.

Mills, of Charter Way, Lowestoft, also admitted handling stolen goods including a TV, a games console, a laptop, computer monitors and several vacuum cleaners stolen from a property in Westhall in June 2016.

Mills was arrested in September 2016 and charged the following November.

Police said several members of the public contacted officers after they released CCTV images.
