A career burglar from Wembley who was caught red-handed by police in Camden has been jailed for four years.

Aldo Jones, 47, was spotted breaking into an address in Fellows Road by officers who had him under surveillance on December 13.

When they arrested the 47 year-old he was found with a purse stolen from the property.

He was also charged with a burglary that took place at Bentley Laboratories, Edgware in January last year where he stole a purse belong to a worker.

Jones admitted two counts of burglary at Harrow Crown Court last Friday.

PC Pedro Alonso, investigating officer, said: “I believe that Aldo Jones is a career burglar who has served previous terms of imprisonment for burglary offences committed across numerous London boroughs.

“The offence of burglary can have a painful and long-lasting effect on its victims.”
