Solihull Editorial 25th May, 2023   0

A BURGLAR who targeted five Acocks Green premises in two weeks has been jailed.

Barrie King struck three times in one day last September first breaking in and stealing items from a staff room at a restaurant in Warwick Road and then at he stole items from a store opposite.

At both premises he was confronted by staff but he forced his way out.

Just a matter of hours later the 41-year-old broke into an unoccupied home in nearby Oxford Road where he carried out an untidy search.

Ten days later he stole electronics, cash and jewellery from a flat in Wellersley Gardens and on 27 September he rode away from a burglary in Stratford Road on a bike he’d just taken, before dumping it at a bus stop nearby.

King, of no fixed address, admitted four burglaries, attempted robbery, theft and assault.

He was jailed at Birmingham Crown Court for five years and four months.
