A burglar who stole a Mercedes and a BMW before damaging them beyond repair has been jailed for five years.
Mitchell Devonshire, 27, from Harlow, Essex, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Tuesday, February 25, where he pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary and theft.
He was convicted alongside co-defendant Cieran Brytz, 31, from Harlow, following the incident in Beccles, as well as a later incident from a St Olaves home.
At around 1am on August 7, 2019, the pair entered a home on Petit Couronne Way, in Beccles, and stole keys to a BMW X6 and a Mercedes, before leaving the scene.
At around 2am, Devonshire entered a home in Priory Road, St Olaves, and stole a laptop, jewellery and stationary.
