A man has been jailed for 29-months after two burglaries in August where items including a charity box was stolen.

Jason Ramsdale, 28, of West Carr Road, Retford was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday 11 February 2020 after pleading guilty to two burglaries. He was handed a 29-month sentence for each burglary to run concurrently.

The incident happened on the morning of 11 August 2019 on Ordsall Park Road in Retford where Ramsdale has entered a house by smashing patio doors with a garden ornament.

Once inside, he stole a charity box containing 1p and 2p coins and emptied another charity box and glass bottles containing 5p and 10p coins.

Another burglary occurred a short distance away shortly after on Manvers Road in Ordsall where a man jumped over a gate, entered a house and gone through the kitchen cupboards.

He entered the house through a smashed bedroom window and stolen eight gold rings from a jewellery box was taken.

Detective Constable Caroline Bailey said: "We are pleased with today's result and pleased that we can give the victim's some reassurance that Ramsdale is behind bars.

"This is another good result for the force's Burglary Team, who continue to work tirelessly to ensure the victims get justice.

"I’m pleased to see the courts recognised the impact this type of crime has on communities and reflected that in their sentence."
