Gary Colin Allan, 47, of no fixed address, was sentenced to five-and-a-half years in prison by a judge at Preston Crown Court.

He was a serial burglar with a criminal record spanning 20 years.

The two charges relate to burglary and the theft of cash, cigarettes and jewellery from two homes in Grinsdale and Lismore Place Carlisle in September.

Detective Constable Ian Hodgson who led the investigation against Allan, said he was delighted at the sentence, and warned people that officers take such offences very seriously.
