Burglar jailed after being snapped on homeowner CCTV

11 Oct 2018

A burglar from Bedford has been jailed for three years after being caught on CCTV at the house he was targeting.

William Martin, 51, of Gibbons Road, was captured on internal CCTV cameras walking around a house in Miller Road, Bedford on Wednesday, 5 September.

Martin had entered the house after removing a rear window from its frame and was able to make off with a tablet, jewellery, cash and bank cards.

CCTV stills captured him inside the house and the detective investigating the crime immediately recognised Martin after reviewing the footage. Martin was then arrested the following day.

The investigation was part of Operation Maze, the force's dedicated unit to tackling burglary and robbery crime.
