Prolific Burglar Jailed For Four Years

    Burglar who stole goods worth tens of thousands of pounds and left traces of blood behind at his crime scenes has been handed a four-year jail sentence.

    Steven Craggs, also known as Steven Leach, of no fixed address, was charged with three burglaries spanning Wisbech, Kings Lynn and Cambridge.

    On 29 November last year, the occupants of a house in Murrow Bank, Murrow, returned home from work to find their white BMW 640D missing from the driveway. The couple then entered their home to find it had been broken into and a safe had gone from their bedroom, containing possessions worth tens of thousands of pounds.

    Blood was found at the house by scenes of crime officers (SOCO) on the back of a photograph which was left on the living room floor. Tests showed a match to that of 42-year-old Craggs. The BMW was located a number of weeks later in Crowland, Lincolnshire.
