A prolific burglar who went on a nine-day crime spree just weeks after his release from prison has been sent back to prison.
Dillon Foreman was released from prison on 27 November where he had been serving a sentence for attempted burglary and car theft.
Just weeks after his release the 22-year-old reoffended when he broke into a house in Wolfick Drive, Spital on Wednesday 30 December.
Over the next nine days, Foreman continued his crime spree targeting homes in Tranmere, Little Sutton, Ellesmere Port, Higher Bebington and Hoylake.
During the majority of incidents, Foreman gained entry via the patio doors and once inside he stole cars and computer systems while the owners slept upstairs.
Thankfully, his crime spree was brought to a swift conclusion when detectives from Ellesmere Port CID and Merseyside Police linked him to the incidents through CCTV footage, DNA and mobile phone analysis.
Foreman, of Charlescombe Street, Tranmere was subsequently arrested and charged with five counts of burglary, three attempted burglary, vehicle thefts and one count of theft of a number plate.
He appeared at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday 5 July where he was sentenced to four years and nine months in prison.
