Tough on Crime....2

Following my post on Saturday about a pair of Peterborough burglars sentenced to three years behind bars under Labour's 'three strikes' rule, this from Lincolnshire Police:

A 31-year old Skegness man has been sentenced to four years in prison for burglary.

The owners of the property he targetted were out when he struck. They returned home to find him inside their property. They confronted him but he fled on a bicycle and was arrested by police later that afternoon.

A four-year prison sentence sends a strong message to would-be burglars - and I hope offers some consolation for his victims...

Any advance on four years for burglary?

Quite right.

What are the odds they are both out in half the time though.

SPIN, SPIN, SPIN, - BLING, BLING, BLING!

Either way, Geoffrey, all three are behind bars right now - and will be for a lengthy stretch...
