Two men have been sentenced for burglary and attempted burglary at student houses in Liverpool.
John Joseph Khan, 50, of Wavertree and Robert Osu, 43, of Kensington both pleaded guilty to a burglary at a property in Jamieson Road, Wavertree on 7 December last year in which laptops, keys and bank cards were stolen.
They also admitted an attempted burglary at a property in Langdale Road on the same date in which a brick was thrown through an upstairs window.
Khan was sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court on Friday to three years.
Osu was sentenced to three years, three months.
Detective Inspector Tony O’Brien from Operation Castle said, “We know the impact that the actions of burglars can cause for the people of Merseyside, whether young students or elderly people. To interrupt or be aware that people have invaded your house is an awful experience to go through, and we are determined to keep reducing offences and the harm this causes across Merseyside.
“I am pleased that Khan and Osu will now spend time behind bars for their actions and I would continue to encourage people to reports any suspicious behaviour so we can take action.
“Our commitment and momentum in catching burglary offenders and putting them before the courts will not cease, so keep coming forward and we’ll do the rest. You can provide information directly to officers, or anonymously via Crimestoppers.”
