A Bedford man who admitted to burgling a Kempston home and a string of other offences has been jailed for more than three years.

Sean Fellowes, 44, of no fixed address, was arrested in July last year after police traced him from forensics left at the scene of a burglary in Spring Road, Kempston.

Today (29 May) at Luton Crown Court, Fellowes was sentenced to three years and four months behind bars after pleading guilty to the burglary, as well as two counts of handling stolen goods and four counts of fraud.

Detective Constable Jason Wheeler, investigating, said: “I am pleased Fellowes has been sentenced to time behind bars.

“I hope that he spends his time reflecting on his actions and the impact his they have had on the victims.

“Fortunately he left forensic evidence at the scene of the burglary, which was located by our Scenes of Crime Officers (SOCO).

“Burglary is a key priority for the force and we have a dedicated unit dealing with burglary offences.

“Such criminality won’t be tolerated and Operation Maze is targeting those individuals who think this brazen behaviour in Bedfordshire is acceptable.”
