Burglar Jailed For Three Years

Wednesday November 27 2013

A BURGLAR has been jailed for three years after admitting breaking into a house and stealing a family’s BMW - which later rammed into a police car.

Mark Corbett, 30, of Probert Avenue, Goldthorpe, burgled a home in Ambleside Crescent, Sprotbrough, Doncaster, during the early hours of October 30, stealing the keys and the car.

As he fled with an accomplice at the wheel, the stolen vehicle rammed a police patrol car driven by PC Paul Greaves.

Corbett pleaded guilty to burglary and aggravated taking without authority, and asked for a further eight offences to be taken into consideration - five attempted house burglaries and three thefts from vehicles, all in Sprotbrough on the same night.

Judge Robert Moore said: "Barely a week goes by without news of a house burglary with people targeted for their cars.

"There will always be substantial custody because they're so serious. You're a serial taker of other people’s cars."
