Man imprisoned for burglaries in Runnymede

Cuffs on wrists










A man has been sentenced to four years and two months imprisonment after pleading guilty to burglaries in Runnymede.

David Stanley, 50, of no fixed abode, appeared at Guildford Crown Court yesterday (Monday, 7 January) charged with four dwelling burglaries and one shed burglary. The offences occurred in Egham and Virginia Water between March and October last year.

Stanley was arrested in Hounslow on 14 December following a media appeal for sightings of the suspected offender.

Police Constable Bryan Stewart, of Surrey Police’s Proactive Investigation Team, said: “Thanks to information from members of the public, Mr Stanley was arrested last month and within three weeks has been charged and imprisoned for these burglaries. I would like to extend my gratitude to the victims in this case who gave a valuable insight in to the impact these crimes had on them which assisted in achieving this positive outcome.

“Being burgled can have a significant effect on the victim and Surrey Police will relentlessly pursue those who violate people’s feelings of safety in their own homes by committing such offences.”

Surrey Police has been running Operation Candlelight to target offenders over the autumn and winter months when there is traditionally a rise in offending. The campaign has combined raising awareness of what members of the public can do to protect their property with increased operational activity to target high-risk areas and known offenders.

    I’ll try to post more but often there’s a big delay in getting the court results.
