A 52-year-old man has been jailed for 32 months for a burglary at a home in Blundeston, near Lowestoft, earlier this year.
Andrew Blyth, of Seago Street in Lowestoft, was charged with a burglary at the home in Hall Lane in Blundeston on Friday, February 26 – where over £9,500 worth of jewellery was stolen.
The court heard he had travelled to the home equipped with tools – a crowbar and a large screwdriver - that were recovered from the back garden of the burgled property.
The householder had left her home secure before leaving for work and had returned at around 6.15pm.
She noticed a window was open and as she entered heard a noise coming from inside.
