London Burglar Jailed following raid at Emmer Green in Reading

A man has been jailed for burglary in Reading.

Christopher Coleman, aged 24, of Sycamore Road, London pleaded guilty to one count of burglary at Reading Crown Court on Thursday (11/7).

He was sentenced, at the same hearing, to two years and five months’ imprisonment.

This is in connection with a burglary in Brooklyn Drive, Emmer Green on 7 May 2019. Officers then located Coleman and found stolen items from the property in the car he was driving. He was subsequently arrested.

Coleman was charged on 8 May.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Alan Pearcy, based at Reading police station said: “Thames Valley Police will robustly investigate all reports of burglary.

“I hope this sentence acts as a deterrent to those thinking of committing such an offence, your actions could result in a prison sentence.

“I would like to thank the victim and witnesses in this case for their support throughout the investigation which led to Coleman pleading guilty due to the over whelming evidence against him.”
