A 28-year-old man has today been sentenced to more than two and a half years following a series of burglaries in Bangor and Caernarfon.
Liam Connor McAuley from Bangor appeared at Caernarfon Crown Court today where he was jailed for two years and seven months for three residential burglaries and fraud.
The first burglary happened on August 26th in Bangor when McAuley is believed to have climbed through a window of a flat and stole £2,000 cash from inside.
Days later on September 2nd, he stole a wallet and cards from another property in Bangor, before committing a third burglary in Caernarfon on September 4th where he stole a handbag with two bank cards inside.
He later used one of the stolen bank cards on a number of occasions.
Following an investigation, McAuley was later charged and remanded after being identified following forensic analysis of a scene and CCTV enquires. He remained on remand in prison until his appearance at Crown Court today.
Speaking following today’s sentencing, Inspector Ian Roberts said: "Burglary is a heinous crime that can have lasting consequences on victims and on the community. Knowing criminals have been in your home, the place you should feel most safe, and stolen personal possessions is sickening.
“We are very fortunate that sequence like this is rare in Gwynedd North, and number of resources was engaged to catch and convict McAuley promptly.
“We will continue to pursue those intent on committing crime and I hope today’s result provide some comfort and reassurance to the victims.”
